Peeling a Raw Egg

ages 4-6


Distilled white vinegar, a raw egg, a clear glass

Activity Detail

If your child fancies him or herself as a "scientist," try this simple experiment to see the effects of acid on a common everyday food item. Carefully place a raw egg inside a clear glass. Pour in enough white vinegar to cover the entire egg. Let it sit for a few days in a secure place. Eventually, the egg will become see-through. The acid in the vinegar literally peels the egg!

To make this experiment more fun, ask your child what they think will happen and how long they think it will take.
