DIY How to Make Surprise Eggs Using Candy / Toy Wrappers

Introduction: DIY How to Make Surprise Eggs Using Candy / Toy Wrappers

This tutorial is fun and easy to make. The kids will love making and opening their own surprise eggs Since "Kinder Surprise Eggs" and "Disney Eggs" can be sometimes hard to find. I hope you make them and your kids enjoy opening them.


Candy or toy plastic wrapper


Hair dryer

Oven glove (I didn’t use one but I wish I did)

Plastic egg

Small surprise toy, stickers, candy etc

Step 2: Blow Drying the Wrapper and Shaping to the Egg.

All you have to do is save your candy and toy wrappers.

The thinner wrappers work better since they’re easier to melt. I used candy wrappers from SpongeBob SquarePants, small candy (but not chocolate because it’ll melt), Moshi Monsters Blind Bags, and Despicable Me Blind Bags.


1. Cut the plastic wrapper to size to make sure the wrapper fits the egg.

2. Wrap it around the plastic egg.

3. Use oven glove to hold the egg.

4. On high setting use the hair dryer to melt the wrapper around the egg.

5. After about 2 min the wrapper should have melted to the egg.

The hair dryer part should be done by the parents as the heat can hurt the kids fingers.

The kids can join in the fun by choosing the toys and cutting the plastic wrappers.

Note: When opening the egg choose the side of the wrapper with the seam, it’ll be easier to open.

Good luck, have fun.

This is a fast and simple tutorial that's lots of fun to make and open the surprises. Share your surprise eggs with me, I would love to see them.
