Do you have any ideas for a project? I have to protect a hard boiled egg from things being dropped on it ONLY using natural resources. HELP!

1st thing dropped on it: tennis ball. 2nd thing dropped: softball/baseball. 3rd thing dropped on it: a huge rock... I have to use at least 4 resources... I have access to pine needles, rocks, wood (sticks about 1 in. thick) and leaves.

use the sticks to make a box. line the egg with leaves, pine needles and reinforce the corners with the rocks

If you could get some straw, you could weave a mat to put over it.

OH ok, so you gotta protect it with naural resources? If so, get a plastic bag(If allowed) and fill it with water, it should deflect all, but I doubt it'll deflect the rock, it may stop it though.

Use mud, dirt, animal fur, something like that.

Create a stick house and pat tons of mud on it to make it sturdy. Then put your egg in the house.
