Step 1: Watch the Video

Watch the video and see how easy it is to make this project step by step.

Step 2: Gather the Material

You will need for this project:

- A Kinder Egg

- Piece off Metal Ball Chain String

- Alligator Clips

Step 3: Get Started

With a needle make some holes around the egg, on the bottom and the sides will do the trick.

I had a piece of metal ball chain string lying around, but you can use something else, i crimp the aligator clip to the chain.

On the top of the egg make a hole to place the chain.

Step 4: Final Thoughts

Now you can place your dried tea leaves incide off the egg, you can place the aligator clip on the edge on off the cup to avoid fowling incide, and enjoy your drink.

Tell me on the comments below what applications you will use this for.

    Nice idea. I suppose you could also make a cute one out of a small plastic easter egg.

    One question: Is there any concern with the plastic soaking in the hot tea? I hear all this talk about plastic bottles being bad for you because of BPAs and whatnot, and its hard to know what the composition of our plastic toy good might be.

    Thanks!, i did some research to try to find out the plastic content but i can't say for sure although it comes attached to a piece of food.
