  1. Put enough vinegar in container to cover the egg. If using a Mason Jar, it’s about 1 cup of vinegar.
  2. Add food coloring to your vinegar. You can add as much as you’d like, but I would suggest keeping it light enough that you can watch the egg shell dissolve!
  3. CAREFULLY add egg to vinegar making sure not to crack the egg. Leave the egg in vinegar for at least 24 hours.
  4. Remove egg from container. I suggest draining the vinegar first and then dumping the egg onto a paper towel.
  5. Pat egg dry with a paper towel.
  6. Give it a bounce! See how high you can drop the egg from before it breaks!
