Meet Eggy - the Egg Cup that's so cute you'll want dippy eggs every day!
Have an egg-cellent Easter making your own Eggy the Egg Cups with our awesome new woodworking kit. This fun kit makes a great craft activity to keep the family entertained this Easter.
Made from beautiful Maple hardwood, Sapele and Birch – Eggy is built to last. You’ll need to properly sand all the handmade components, attach the legs and then finish it with Osmo food safe oil*. We’ve got detailed video instructions to guide you through the process step by step so join the fun and make yours today!
*Please note that whilst Osmo is food-safe when dry, the oil does contain a small amount of drying agent and so should only be handled by an adult.
WHAT'S IN THE KIT? The kit comes with all the specialist hardwood components needed to build your Egg Cup. Choose between having one or two Eggy Egg Cups in your kit. We also provide sandpaper, a finishing kit (natural colour) and full instructions.
Your Eggy The Egg Cup Making Kit comes with:
Hardwood components (to make either one or two Eggys)
120 grit and 180 grit high quality sandpaper
Osmo Hardwax-Oil finishing kit with Clear Satin Osmo sachet (one sachet is enough for two egg cups)

WANT A MORE COLOURFUL FINISH? If you'd like a more colourful Eggy Egg Cup, we recommend our Osmo Oil Colour Finishing Kit. This contains red, blue, yellow and white sachets for mixing your own colours. One colour kit should be enough for 4 or 5 egg cups so the whole family can join in! Find out more here ›
WHAT TOOLS WILL I NEED? You’ll need some PVA glue, kitchen roll or an old cloth, and a hammer. If you need a hammer – you can get one here.
Whilst not essential, masking tape can also make the job a bit easier and a small paint brush can help apply the glue. Everything else you need is supplied in the kit.
WHO ARE THE KITS FOR? This kit is a great family project but as always, supervision is a must. The Osmo oil we provide can only be used by adults due to the very small amount of drying agents in it and it will stain anything it touches so make sure you work on a suitable surface.
Adults should also ensure the parts are properly sanded before applying oil to make sure the surface is properly smooth – this will ensure you can clean it properly when you’ve finished munching your egg!
This is not a toy and children must be supervised at all times when helping to build this kit.
HOW LONG DOES THE KIT TAKE TO MAKE? You’ll be able to build your egg cup in about 1-2 hours but once you’ve applied the oil finish, you’ll need to wait for that to dry which usually takes around 12 hours. As it’s a natural oil finish – the longer you can wait the better as it hardens more and more with time but a week would be ideal.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY EGGY EGG CUP? Eggy the egg cup is not dishwasher safe so please don’t put him in there! He can be wiped clean with warm soapy water, then patted dry.
Over time, each wash will remove a little bit of the natural oil finish – you’ll be able to tell as it will start to look a bit dry over time. When this happens, just wipe on another coat of our Osmo oil and you’re done for the next few years.
