We sure love us some fun Science experiments here at Paging Fun Mums HQ and this activity is no different!
This is egg-actly what my kids get egg-cited about. This really is an egg-cellent science experiment…ok, it’s not punny anymore 😉
This teaches the kiddies about egg anatomy and osmosis – aside from that though, it’s super fun and exciting!
To make your own you will need
Enough Eggs for each highlighter colour (we made four, but found the orange & green worked best)
A glass jar for each egg
Take your highlighter and take the top and end off it – remove the inner tube and squeeze the ‘juice’ into a jar. Continue this for each colour
Using a spoon, carefully add your raw and unpeeled eggs to each jar
Add enough vinegar to cover each egg
Let them sit for 2 – 3 days. After this time, carefully remove each egg and brush away it’s shell – you will find that they have disintegrated and are very easy to remove! You will also see that the egg is very swollen!
Turn all of the lights off, turn on a black light and watch your amazing Magic Glowing Eggs GLOW!
Learn all about Osmosis here. This is such a great way to combine science and fun!
We absolutely had a ball (or should I say oval) with this experiment. Let us know what you think by adding your comments below!
