    My 7 year old nephew loves to put a marshmallow in the microwave (on a paper plate of course) for 30-60 minutes and watch it expand to more than 3 times it’s regular size. He’s having a blast with the new JUMBO Marshmallows! Mom and I think it’s pretty cute too.

    So am I missing the “How-to” link on these? It sounds like these are a great summertime activity but I can’t seem to find the “instructions” on how to do each. Am I missing something here?

    My son did the eggshell experiment and now has shards of eggshell wedged under his toe nail.. help? Also i microwaved a marshmallow for 25 minutes and that was just fine, Judy ;) And i feel the term “naked egg” is inappropriate for any child under the age of 17.. what are we trying to encourage here???????

  8. Wendy says:

    The eggshell experiment was fun, I did that with my 5 year old. Also to Patty P. I run a conservative home, and yet I think having to be 17 before you can say “naked” is a bit much.(no I’m not trying to picka fight or start a debate, I’m just saying jeez we don’t have to look even in a fun kids science project for some BAD meaning) I don’t think we would encourage anybody to take off their clothes after making an eggshell dissolve away with vinegar. Science in a fun way can be so rewarding with little ones, I love to see these experiments posted!!

    First I doubt shards of egg shells are stuck in your kids foot unless your childs overweight as my 8 year old did this one cracked and he survived without injury. Second naked is not a dirty word we are all born that way. What kinda mind thinks naked is bad? 3rd Please have your child watch Bambi ( There is no nudity) There is a message in there I am sure you missed out on as a child. This website is a great tool. Negative rude people don’t belong. Only fun Moms looking for fun activites.
