egg experiments

We had some fun playing with an egg today. Here is where we got the idea. Last night we left it to soak in a cup of vinegar. It was covered in bubbles and spun around in the glass. The girls loved it.

It didn't take long for the outer layer to start coming off. 

This morning we gently rubbed the last of the shell of and were left with this

Then we wanted to make the egg bigger so we soaked it in water. Green water for fun :)

You can see how much water passed through the membrane by the size difference between the eggs. After that I just let the girls play with it. I wish I got video when it popped. Anika was picking a hair off of it and it sprayed her :) There was a lot of green water inside with the egg white and yolk.
