Egg Geodes

These were inspired by Kate of Picklebums way back at Easter time. We made several different solutions and colour coded them, red is sugar (complete with ants), blue was bicarb, green was salt and yellow was laundry detergent, which didn’t set. The girls loved it.

It’s very simple, make sure the egg shells are boiled or peel the membrane off them so it doesn’t go off, then pour in a really strong solution of some sort and put them in the sun. We used sugar, salt, bicarb, laundry detergent. Epsom salts work really well but we didn’t have any.
