Science Freaks: Make and Egg Shell Disappear

Have you ever wondered what an egg looks like on the inside? Eggs are such a unique and special part of life. But when you crack them open they are different than they looked before. It is nearly impossible to see what they look like, untouched inside the shell. Or is it?

This fun experiment from Go Science Girls will help you to finally see inside of an egg. This is so different than a hard boiled egg which only lets you see the firm outer egg white layer. This experiment will help you to remove the outer shell while keeping the white membrane and yellow yolk fully intact.

This experiment can pose a few questions. Is the egg white an important part of the egg? What protects the eggs, the shell, or the egg white? What will happen if the egg shell is removed? what will happen if there is no egg white?

Discuss with your kids why both the egg shell and the white membrane are important. Check out this article about the anatomy of an egg and why each part is important.

Head on over to Go Science Girls for a full tutorial on how to achieve this incredible science experiment. Be sure to check out some other cool experiments while you are there. They do not disappoint!

Avengers: End Game Party

Our family loves Marvel Comics. We have seen all of the Marvel movies and are waiting impatiently for the final Avengers movie. So if you are like us you may just be planning something fun this weekend.

We are planning a marathon of the previous Avengers movies on Friday night through Saturday at home, then on Sunday morning we plan to take our kids to see the final movie. We have our favorites, Spider-man and Iron Man are the two main reasons our kids love Marvel. So we plan to have a little treat to make the night more fun.

We plan to copy this incredibly cool Spider-man inspired pizza for dinner. Then we plan to have some amazing Avenger Cupcakes for dessert.

Thanks to some incredible cupcake topper we can choose our favorites, of course the kids chose Iron Man.

We plan to enjoy some incredibly delicious popcorn and just relax all weekend soaking up the superhero themed fun with our kids. Do you plan on seeing Avengers: End Game? Do you take your kids? Are you hitting up the midnight showing?

Science at Home: Geodes

If there is one thing in this life I am certain of it is that two things never change: kids love dinosaurs and kids love rocks. You can find just about any child under the age of 8 and ask them a question about a rock or a dinosaur and no matter what you will get at least one question answered. My kids love both rocks and dinosaurs, and I am certain they know more about both than I ever will. So i try to listen, I try to stay interested, and I try to find them fun activities that allows them to continue to grow in their hobbies.

Currently our household is on a rock kick. So i try to incorporate rock related activities and learning experiences as often as possible. we love to hike and have found many different types of rocks and geodes on our hikes, however, I found this incredibly easy experiment to create our own geodes and knew that my kids would love it.

This fun experiment was posted at Feels Like Home Blog and has a very detailed and easy-to-follow tutorial on how to create your own geodes at home. Geode crystals are such an incredibly cool part of geology and show how sediment is formed to create beautiful things. This would make an excellent experiment for a science fair, home school, or simply to enjoy learning something while having fun with your kids at home.
