Just Add Egg Review
To perform a cool science experiment, all you need to do is grab an egg and the STEAM kit Just Add Egg. This organic science and art kit comes with the tools you need for 14 activities and egg-speriments, and all you have to provide are eggs – and a few other tools from your kitchen.
You can make an egg disappear, shrink an egg, dye an egg, do egg blowing, put a hardboiled egg in a bottle, make an egg shell geode, separate the egg white from the yolk, make an egg shell candle, create egg shell mosaics, make a dinosaur egg, make your own chalk out of egg shells, create an egg succulent garden, and make hair grow on your egg.
While the kit includes most of the components needed for the experiments, you’ll need to provide additional tools, such as eggs, water, cotton balls, vinegar, a permanent marker, paint, and wax paper. Each activity lists all the tools needed.
The kit comes with one wick, white glue, wax, 0.25 pounds of soap base, two crayons, molding clay, three bottles of food coloring, a one-inch dinosaur model, 250mL of corn syrup, instructions, and three illustrations for coloring. We wish some of the components were labeled to make it easier for us to know what they were.
Should I get it?
The experiments in this kit are designed to be fun and hands-on for kids, though adult assistance will be required. We like that there are 14 activities and that most of the tools you need are provided. The instructions for almost all of the activities provide questions to get kids thinking about what they just saw and explanations for the science behind it.
