What's up with that Egg-Speriment?

We are discussing dental health this week in school. To teach the girls the importance of brushing their teeth we are doing an egg-speriment. We placed a room temperature egg into a bowl of toothpaste so that only half of the egg is covered. We wrapped the bowl with saran wrap and set to the side for 4 full days......

At the end of the 4 days we will place the egg in vinegar for 7 hours. We should see at the end of the 7 hours that the side that was sitting in toothpaste will be hard and the non toothpaste side will be soft. Proving that brushing with toothpaste helps keep your teeth hard and healthy.


  1. very cool experiment! I might do that one with the kids...they have been doing lots of dental stuff in school this month.
    and thanks for posting all those recipies... the granola looks wonderful! Now I just need to whip up some yogurt in my crockpot (Amber!) and I'll be set :)

  2. The granola was so easy and delicious. I don't know why I have not been doing this all along.
