Egg Drop

It's that time of year. . . end of school year activities which includes the annual egg drop. All of the students think of some sort of contraption to hold their raw egg with the hopes it won't break when thrown off the roof of the school.  Hadley was excited to think of a creative way all on her own this year.  She put her egg all wrapped up in toilet paper inside the egg carton.  Ryan didn’t care if he participated or not this year (being the big 6th grader and all) and used the left over spaghetti noodles from Morgan’s project.  Put his egg inside a Ziploc of noodles and then in another Ziploc full of air.  Morgan put her egg inside a Ziploc bag of noodles and then put it inside a big, black, fluffy pillow.  Hadley’s egg was the only one that survived this year.  Way to go Hadley!!!

Morgan was so excited to run and pick up her egg contraption off of the ground.

The excitement quickly died when she saw that her egg had cracked and was smeared all over her noodles!

Hadley anxiously waits to see her egg

I love that Hadley came up with this cute contraption all by herself.  

It worked!  No cracks!

Ryan finds his egg inside the spaghetti noodles

All cracked!

Where do these ideas come from? All in good fun and looks like a really fun way to get outside for the kids and their teachers. Good job Hadley and love the excitement of Morgan. Ryan, was a good sport (being a 6th grader and all :)

I had that dish in Italy actually. It just needs a little parmesan.
