Using a few ingredients from you can add a little science to dying your Easter Eggs.
- Baking Soda
- Food Coloring
- Eye Dropper
- Paint Brush
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- 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.
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.Go to www.hookedonscience.org for more experiments that might get you and your family “Hooked on Science.”
