How To… Make a Tooth Fairy Box & More Kinder Surprise Craft Ideas
This is a hybrid “How To” and craft round up – all about Kinder Egg Surprise cases – I made Tooth Fairy boxes for the kids… the kids made a horsey.. and I collated more ideas to inspire you this Easter (and all year round)!
So, my children had some Kinder Surprise Eggs as a treat recently – I remember them well from my childhood (as Überraschungseier) and there is something irresistible about them: You get a chocolate egg treat, and inside there is a yellow case with a toy or puzzle inside. You never know what you will get! Always a surprise. Apparently Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned in the US! Sorry! But the rest of the world has them.
The children always wolf down their chocolate, check out what toy they have received and then we are then left with that well known Kinder Surprise case. Not sure what you call it. So… what to do with all those yellow capsules? I am pretty certain that Children around the globe will be gettig Kinder Surprises this Easter, so I thought I would quickly pull together some craft ideas!
What you need to make these Tooth Fairies:
Materials: One Kinder Surprise Capsule per fairy, acrylic paint, varnish, ribbon, hot glue gun, fabric scarps
1) I painted on the fairies – using the shape of the capsule to guide me a little – i.e. the head is the capsule lid. And the fairies’ cloaks run along a little ridge that the capsules have.
2) Varnished it, to help stop the paint from crumbling.
3) Tied my ribbon into a bow and glued it on with the hot glue gun.
4) Added “padding” in the form of a scrap of old “jumper” for the tooth to rest on!
Place your tooth in the fairy:
Leave your tooth fairy by or under the pillow and the next day, open your tooth fairy up to find:

A horsey! Cute, no? We attached the two capsules by snapping one lid onto the second egg and the second lid onto the first…
