With Easter right around the corner, a lot of households are finding themselves with an abundance of eggs. Of course, if your house (or, ahem, Mom's special hide-good-stuff-away-closet) is anything like mine, most of those eggs are of the chocolate or jelly variety.
But, on the off chance your family is healthier than mine and you have more actual eggs than you know what to do with, it's a good time to do some egg-sperimenting. Or, as the less pun-oriented would put it: Egg Science.
There are all sorts of cool experiments to try with eggs. My favorite is making the Naked Egg. All you need is some white vinegar, an uncooked egg, a container and a few days. By the end of the experiment, you'll be able to shine a flashlight through the now-translucent egg and make it glow!
Or, as my middle child put it, you'll have the equivalent of an egg water balloon. How can something that icky be anything but fun?
