HOLIDAY MAGIC: Make Grinch Eggs!  This is so cool! #grincheggs #scienceexperimentskids #christmasactivitiesforkids #christmascrafts #grinchcrafts #grinchcraftsforkids #grinchactivitiesforkids
Nothing says Christmas to me quite like the Grinch!  Ever since I was a girl that grumpy green guy has always made my heart grow-in-size at Christmas time!

Today, we decided to extend the fun of one of our favorite holiday movies & make GRINCH eggs.

This is a fun holiday twist on one of our favorite science experiments.  Why is it a favorite?  Hello, it's mostly magic!

What are Grinch eggs?


That sneaky GRINCH.  He stole the eggshells right off of our eggs!  He is so mischievous & naughty.  
He dyed them green, too! 

Hehehe, pair this silly bit of science with a few Grinch crafts or the Grinch movie, and you are sure to have a fun-filled evening!  

They are silly, slimy, & ultra fun!

Method
  • Begin by filling a jar or container with vinegar, ensuring that the container is deep enough for the eggs to be fully submerged.

  • Now, carefully place the desired amount of eggs into the jar.

  • You can make one GRINCH EGG at a time or several.
It is now time to sit back & observe.

The Experiment

  • Have kids visit the jar often over the next several days, making note of any changes that they observe.

Our Observations:
  • Day 1: Th eggs looked as though they were changing color.  They were also bubbling on the surface?  We wondered why.

  • Day 2: The eggs looked Grinch green all the way through.   But was there more going on??

After 3 days we removed our eggs from the vinegar, and this is what we found:
  • The eggs were green all the way to the yolks!
  • The eggshells had completely disappeared from the eggs!

  • To see this even better we used a flashlight.  
  • Place the egg(s) directly on top of the flashlight to see all the way through your egg! 
Rosie & Jewel were truly WOWED and couldn't believe the "magic" that had happened right before their eyes!
The Science
  • Why do the eggshells dissolve?
  • Why do the eggs bubble up during day 2?
  • How does the egg stay in tact without a shell?
