An Egg-tastic week, that's a knee-slapper, right?

I must admit that when I had the whole summer camp thing rolling around in my head, it was going to go differently. Not that it can't work differently; this week has just been super busy, so we didn't get as many projects in as I had hoped. 

While I had one printout with five experiments, we only did 3 of them. Maybe next week we will be able to pick up the slack and finish them all. If not that's ok, they will be there for a rainy day. Our egg is still "cooking," in the vinegar. I think it will take an extra day or 2 to be finished. The tornado in the jar was cool, but I don't think Dawson was too impressed with it. Now, what he loved was the baking soda and vinegar experiment. That was one I set up that he could do himself and he was impressed with that. See below how they turned out! Don't forget to watch the video of the "Fizz, fizz, pop, pop"! 

You can see that the egg is not finished. But you can see also that the egg has changed from the first to the last. So soon, I hope we will have a final picture to show the shell completely gone. 

The tornado, we got a little too blue. But you can see it. Again, Dawson was not too impressed with this experiment. Maybe it would be better for someone younger. He is 7 though. I guess he is already too cool.

This was the experiment that Dawson really liked. As you can see he was able to do this on his own.

This is something any kid I think can do. Just make sure they don't drink the vinegar or eat the baking soda. 

Have you done any summer camps? Are your kids away from camps? Do they plan n going to a camp of any kind? 

Stay tuned for a final picture of our "egg!"
