Now we scramble! Grab the ends of the nylons, one end in each hand, with the egg suspended in the middle. Begin to twist the nylon around the egg, about 20-25 twists. When it is fully twisted, pull the ends of the nylon apart quickly. The nylon should untwist itself, spinning the egg rapidly.
Repeat about 10 times.
If you are letting the kids help, you may be concerned about handing them what are essentially flails made of nylon and raw egg. I don't blame you :) But have no fear! Simply put each egg in a ziploc bag before you put it in the nylon. Now if they smack an egg on a table top (or their sibling's head), there'll be no mess to clean up (only hurt feelings).
