6 Genius Ways To Repurpose Your Kinder Surprise Eggs

Fun and games and chocolate: Kinder Surprise Eggs were an integral part of childhood for many. In addition to the chocolate, no egg was complete without the infamous yellow capsule. In the past you could stack these plastic bits on top of each other and sometimes they were even part of the toy. But even today you can find surprising possibilities for the containers, as the following 6 handy tips and tricks will show you.

1. Matchbox

Cut out the striking surface of a matchbox and glue it to the inside of the egg with superglue.

Then place the matches face down in the capsule – not only will this keep your matches waterproof, but it means you can directly strike the match when pulling it out.

2. Toothbrush Case

When traveling, you can keep your toothbrush well protected from dust and dirt by cutting a hole in the bottom of the capsule with a utility knife.

Slide the toothbrush head-first through the hole and close the capsule.

3. Earbud Case

Wrap your earbuds up tight and put them in the Kinder Egg. The sealed capsule allows you to easily carry them around so you can skip the headache of tangled cables.

4. Pencil Sharpener

Drill a hole in the bottom of the container that is about the diameter of a pencil. Then glue a commercial pencil sharpener against the hole on the inside.

Now you'll always have a personal pencil sharpener handy!

5. Lollipop Holder

To make a lollipop holder out of the plastic capsule, all you have to do is drill a hole in the bottom and the capsule will become a storage container for your sucker, meaning you can carry it around lint-free and save the rest for later.

6. Shoe Deoodorizer

You'll need:

  • empty teabags for loose tea
  • funnel
  • spoon
  • baking soda
  • stapler
  • Kinder Surprise Egg capsule
  • thumbtack

Here's how:

6.1 Fill the teabag with a few teaspoons of baking soda using a funnel. To seal the teabag, fold the top down several times and staple it shut.

6.2 Place the sealed teabag in the capsule and pierce the capsule several times with a thumbtack so the deodorizer can take effect. 

6.3 Create as many deodorizer capsules as you want, place one in each shoe, and you'll have fresh kicks in no time! Make sure to replace the baking soda every so often for the full effect, but thanks to the capsules, it's a quick and easy task.
