Are your children just starting their mid term break? Looking for some exciting activities to entertain them over the next two weeks? How about some Eggsellent Eggsperiments to keep everyone happy?
Here are five of our favourite experiments for Easter… or any other time of the year.
1. THE FLOATING EGG EXPERIMENT
Take this one step further….
We mentioned in the video that you can take this experiment a step further.
Float the egg in the salty water as before.
Add a few drops of food colouring to a jug of unsalted water.
Carefully pour this coloured water down the side of the glass so that it sits on top of the salty water.
The egg will sit between the two layers… can you see it in this picture?
2. BALANCING EGG EXPERIMENT
The junior science team were a little enthusiastic
with their salt levels in this video
but you can get this to work with A LOT less salt.
3. HOW CAN YOU TELL IF AN EGG IS RAW OR COOKED?
4. IMPRESS YOUR FRIENDS WITH THIS EGG IN A BOTTLE TRICK
5. MAKE A BOUNCY EGG
Not only did we make a bouncy egg, but we also made a fluorescent one…. check out these experiments here.
There will be plenty of great Easter blog posts by fellow Irish Parenting Bloggers over the next week or two…. here are a few already posted and if you check back I will keep this list updated as new posts are available.
