How to Do It
The molecules of air that are inside of the bottle move away from each other when the paper heats up. When the flame goes out, the molecules cool down and move to the bottom of the bottle, causing a partial vacuum. Normally the outside air would rush into the bottle, but because the egg is in the way. The force of the air molecules outside of the bottle are so strong that they push the egg right into the bottle.
To get the eggs out of the bottles, use care that the matches don't fall out. Hold the bottle upside down over our mouth. Place your mouth on the bottle and blow. The egg should slide right out.
