Raising Dragons: Exploding Easter Egg Experiment

To wrap up the fun, we tried an experiment to see if we could get the tops of the eggs to pop off.

For this experiment you need eggs that can stand on their own, water and fizzing tablets. Fill the bottom part of the egg to the top with water, drop in 1 or 2 (we used 2) tablets and place the top of the egg on quickly. Then stand back and watch. While the results weren’t as dramatic as I thought they would be the boys loved it and that’s what really matters!

ages 4 – 8
