Using a few ingredients from you can add a little science to dying your Easter Eggs.

INGREDIENTS

  • Vinegar

  • Baking Soda

  • Food Coloring

  • Eye Dropper

  • Paint Brush

  • Hard Boiled Eggs

INSTRUCTIONS

  • STEP 1: Add food coloring and water to the baking soda to create a paste.

  • STEP 2: Using the paint brush, paint the hard boiled eggs with the paste.

  • STEP 3: Using the eye dropper, squeeze the vinegar over the hard boiled eggs and observe.

EXPLANATION

When the vinegar is squeezed over the eggs covered in a paste, which includes baking soda, a chemical reaction occurs creating carbon dioxide gas. The vinegar helps the food coloring in the paste attach to the shell of the egg creating a unique and colorful design.
