Science Experiment: The Floating Egg

Science Experiment: The Floating Egg

As I hovered the egg over a jar of water, I asked my 3.5 year old, "Will it sink or float?" and it reminded me of Dave Letterman's funny sketch, "Will it Float?" Have you seen it? This science experiment is really easy to set up + clean up, and the lesson learned on the density of water actually stuck with my 3-year old daughter long after the experiment was over. Fun and success!
