Claare's Wonderful Things To Do With Neggs


by dewdropzz

Hi! I'm Claare, and I'm here to tell you about some wonderful things to do with neggs. Now, everyone knows neggs are great. I mean, what's not to love about the mysterious and incredibly interesting objects with a remarkable resemblance to eggs, and cute little fruit-like stems shooting out the tops? Did you know they're good for a whole lot more than just eating and collecting though? What I'm about to share with you, is a detailed list of uses for neggs that you've probably never thought of.

Negg Decorating

One of the many great things about neggs is that they come in so many different colours and styles. Whatever kind of rooms you have, I guarantee there are neggs to match the decor! For example, a pretty pink room could have Pretty Pink Easter Neggs, and a spooky room could have Mummified and Staring Neggs. How do I use neggs in my decor, you ask? By sitting them on tables and chairs, hanging them from the ceiling, or how about stringing a whole bunch of them together to make a garland? And you don't have to just do the inside! You can line your garden with them, or simply sit them in flower pots if you don't have a garden. Imagine getting to knock on somebody's door with a negg doorknocker? The possibilities in negg decorating are endless!

WARNING: When hanging neggs from the ceiling, be mindful as to which ones you use. Steel and Rock neggs can be extremely dangerous as they can result in serious injury. Also avoid sitting neggs that seem to be on fire on furniture or anything flammable.

Negg Fashion

Pets have been wearing negg themed clothing since year one. There are things like the Negg Shell Hat, Pastel Negg Dress, and my favourite - the beautiful Lavender Negg Necklace! But has anyone ever tried wearing a real negg? I'm sure I, for one, could come up with a hundred great designs using them! You could sew the stems into sweaters, make a cool stem-print shirt, attach whole neggs to the zippers of jackets and jeans, backpacks and purses, and even negg belts! You could make jewelry with them too, by stringing a whole bunch together, similar to a negg garland, but smaller scale. And don't forget about hats! I can see it now! Negg Clothing, the next big thing!

Negg Games

One of my favourite outdoor games is "Kick the Can". A game where one player gets to be "it" and counts to a number, while the other players hide. When "it" is finished counting, they try to catch and tag the other players, and if a player gets caught they have to go to jail until somebody kicks the can and releases them. If you're an experienced player, you know that the game doesn't only have to be played with cans. You can use rocks, pails, even neggs! Like in negg decorating, try not to use anything that might cause injury. Also don't use anything too expensive, just in case you break the negg while playing. I would suggest regular neggs, which currently cost less than 2000 neopoints. Another game regular neggs are good for is bowling. It's just like normal bowling, but instead of pins, you use neggs! One of the best things about this game is it can be played indoors or out. You can play it by yourself or with a friend. You could even arrange negg bowling teams! These are only two examples of games you can play with neggs. I'm sure you can think of many more!

Negg Experiments

What is a negg exactly? They're shaped like eggs, but they have a stem like a fruit. If something has a stem, that means it grew on a tree. Does that mean neggs grow on trees? If you plant an apple seed in the ground, it will grow an apple tree. Neggs don't have seeds, (I know because I split a whole bunch of them open when I was bowling with them) so what would happen if you planted a whole one? Would it grow a tree? Why don't you plant one and see if you can prove that a negg is a fruit? If you believe that a negg is closer to an egg than a fruit, there's an experiment to test that hypothesis too. Try arranging them in a nest in a tree outside your neohome. If a bird tries to hatch them, you'll know neggs are really eggs! There's no fooling a mama bird, you know! Of course, you'll want to use ones that will attract different kinds of birds. If you like naleaps, use shiny ones like the Happy Anniversary Negg. If you want to see beekadoodles in your garden, use sweet smelling ones like the Cookie Negg. If you use the right neggs, you'll soon have all different types of birds wanting to sit on them. That is, if neggs really are eggs of course. Whichever experiment you choose, I bet you'll have fun!

Negg Gifts

This is my favourite thing on the list. Everybody loves receiving gifts, right? Why don't you send a negg to your best neofriend as a gift? Now that you've found all these fun things to do with neggs, you should share your discovery with someone else and let them experience the same joy. If they're just gonna use it for its regular purpose, a negg as a gift is still a very special thing. And they have them for all occasions! You could send a Candy Cane one for Christmas, a Pumpkin one for Halloween, a Happy Birthday one for a birthday... you get the picture. If it's just for a regular day, you could send any negg you like, maybe one that's your friend's favourite colour or something. You should have seen how happy my owner was when someone randomly sent her a Smiley Negg. (It's sitting in her inventory to this day!) Even if the recipient doesn't appreciate neggs as much as my owner and I do, getting a present from a neofriend, no matter how cheap or expensive the item is, can really make someone's day. So what are you waiting for? Send someone a negg! I guarantee you'll make someone smile.

Negg Articles

This might be the weirdest thing on my list. To want to do this, you would probably have to be, at least somewhat, strange. I mean, why would anyone in their right mind want to write an article about neggs when they could be doing all the other fun things I talked about? If you're sure you want to though, read on. The writing of a negg article is pretty simple, and I've broken it down into four easy steps.

  • Step 1: Think of something about neggs you'd like to share with the world.
  • Step 2. Using your favourite writing utensil, write your idea down on paper.
  • Step 3. Put the paper in an envelope and send it to the editor of the Neopian Times.
  • Step 4. Hope that TNT is as weird as they seem and that they want to publish it!

It's that simple! And now that you know all these cool things to do with neggs, I'm sure you'll be able to write a wonderful article!

Well, folks, there you have it! Some wonderful things to do with neggs that you never would have thought of. I hope you enjoyed this article, and that you now see neggs for the incredible things they are!
