Create a bouncing egg with one of the easy science experiments and fun food games for kids.
Kids science activities should always be supervised by an adult.
This is good for home or in school science class.
Fill the glass about 3/4 full with vinegar. There should be enough vinegar so the egg is covered without it spilling out of the glass.
Set the glass aside for one week (7 days).
After 7 days has passed, get a bowl then remove the egg from the vinegar. Hold the egg about 7 inches above the bowl. Let go!!
Your egg should bounce back once it hits the bottom of the bowl.
Vinegar is an acid while the egg shell is calcium carbonate. The egg shell goes soft when submerged in vinegar.
Have fun with the bouncing egg!
One of the easy experiments that kids can do with friends or at a party.
Get one paper towel for the number of kids that are playing. On each towel, write the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Number each cup individually from 1 to 5. Give each child a note paper and pen.
Place a jelly bean above each number on each kid's towel.
In the cups, place the same flavors of jelly beans, but mix them up. Don't put the jelly beans in the cups in the same order as you placed them on the paper towels.
Begin by having the kids eat the 1st jelly bean then write the flavor they think it is down on the note paper.
Continue until they have eaten and written down all 5 of the jelly beans.
Next you will have the kids taste the jelly beans in the cups. Each child will close her eyes.
Hand her a jelly bean from the first cup.
The play continues until each child has eaten all 5 flavored jelly beans from the cup.
Usually what happens is - if you can't see what you're eating, you often get the flavor wrong!
See who got the most right! The winner gets a prize.
