Have you seen this experiment floating around blogland and Pinterest? It was so much fun and super easy to do which is always a plus. If you haven't tried this yet I highly recommend it.
All you need is a jar, a raw egg, and some vinegar. What could be easier?
- Put your egg inside the jar.
- Cover the egg with white vinegar.
- Let it set for 24 hours.
- After 24 hours dump the old vinegar and put fresh vinegar into your jar.
- Let the egg rest in the new vinegar for another 2-3 days and watch the process.
We also tried a few different eggs just to see what the differences would be:
L-R: Boiled egg, boiled egg soaked in vinegar, raw egg soaked in vinegar, raw egg.
Then came the fun part, the bouncing! And yes they did bounce, a little at least. Although I think the best part was when we found out at a certain height it would bust.
Nothing like some good gooey fun with some busted eggs. My girls are already asking to do this one again.
