How to Make a Bouncy Egg


Introduction: How to Make a Bouncy Egg

Eggs are extremely fragile and brittle, but with the help of a little vinegar an egg can become bouncy !

Step 1: Materials

-1 raw egg
-1 cup with vinegar (enough to submerge the egg)
-1 empty cup

-Colored flashlight

Step 2: Steps

Put egg in empty cup (be careful not to drop it!)
Pour cup of vinegar into the cup with the egg.
Wait 48 hours...
Once 48 hours has passed, retrieve the egg and peel the shell off.
Your egg is now bouncy ! Put a colored flashlight behind it to make the entire egg glow. Be careful not to drop it too high or puncture it. Have fun!

    Is the texture totally different to a boiled egg? is it worth the 48 hour wait compared to the 5 minute wait of a boiled egg?

    Yes! And you can put it to the side while you wait so you don't need to worry about it!

    I've done this before with my kids and the egg shell becomes the weirdest texture!
