Or folded an egg in half?
Or bounced an egg on the table without making it break?
You and your kids can astound your friends and family with three easy egg science “eggs-periments.” All it takes is one secret ingredient and a little patience.
In this article I’ll show you how to remove the hard eggshell to discover what lies beneath an egg’s tough exterior.
Why Remove the Eggshell?
Scrambled, boiled, sunny side up… naked? Most kids (and grownups, too) are familiar with the many things you can do with eggs. Wouldn’t it be fun to try something with an egg that you’ve never seen before?
Do you have a future scientist in your household?
Help your kids discover the science behind nature’s beauty with this fun family experiment.
In this article I’ll show you how to unlock all of the hidden secrets in a leaf through chromatography.
Don’t let the name scare you off, it’s a super-simple science experiment done with items you probably already have around the house.
And it’s a great way to help your kids learn more about the world around us.
It starts out as a nature walk where the kids have a mission—finding different kinds of leaves—so parents can relax and enjoy the lovely fall colors.
Then there’s pounding and noise and actually trying to stain things green. How often are kids allowed, much less encouraged, to do that?
Finally, there’s a science experiment involving chemicals and mysterious migrating colors that appear from nowhere. You’ll see a scientific phenomenon occur right before your eyes!
And it’s all to answer an age-old question that your kids have undoubtedly asked: How do the leaves change color?
Wow! Where do I sign up?
