Make a cool night light.. out of an egg!
*I'd love a vote in the egg contest, I only started doing instructables this week and it would mean alot!*
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting Ready!
A g4 led capsule (small enough to fit in egg).
A power adapter that can connect to the 2 points of a g4 capsule. I used this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Masterplug-MVA1200-Mains-Multi-Voltage-Adaptor/dp/B0083S19YW
Some eggs (It may take a few attempts)
and finally around 30 minutes time (excluding dry time)
Step 2: Make Your Light!
Get your lightbulb and bend in and attach the 2 rod thingys (I'm no technical man) so they fit for your power supply.
Step 3: Make Them Stay!
For my bulb so the rods could stay in I had to bend the rods slightly upwards as in the photo. Using sellotape could help if your having difficulties.
Step 4: And Power!
Turn your power adapter to the right voltage for your bulb, then switch it on. No result? check your bulb is fixed in well!
Step 5: Egg Time!
What you need:
A small spoon
Some eggs (thouroughly washed)
First tap the bottom side of the egg lots of times with your upside-down spoon over the bowl, stop when you have a 1-2ish cm hole (must be big enough for bulb).
Then Tap the top side of the egg too, this time the hole can be alot smaller.
Step 6: Egg Blowing!
Put your mouth to the top side of the egg then blow lightly, this worked firs time with me and you can still use your egg yolk and white for cooking if you've done this well.
Then wash the egg and leave it to dry.
Step 7: Decorate
Paint or draw on your egg shells, I used watercolours following another instructable Here by the amazing unicornscience. Just covering it in colour works really well so don't worry if you mess up a bit!
I did 3 different eggs and they all worked super well.
Step 8: Cut Up Your Base
I used part of an egg box and had my egg slightly tilted to one side so the cable and bulb could fit through.
Be as imaginative as possible for this bit and comment your ideas below!
Step 9: Done!
Once everything is assembled switch your light on and see the awesomeness.
