This activity was totally done to Dylan and his curiosities.
After our egg science experiment of dropping eggs on different surfaces Dylan wanted to do the same with the boiled egg he had decorated . He was shocked when it didn't break as the raw egg did before. I explained eggs go hard when you cook them.
When he dropped the egg, the shell cracked. He naturally started picking at it and looked for reassurance and I said it was ok as long as we wash hands right away. Once he peeled it all off I broke the egg in half to show him inside. He was intrigued .
