Love the Russian accent! 10 interesting and cool experiments you'll learn to do in this video:

  1. How to separate the egg yolk from whites with nothing but a simple cheap plastic water bottle
  2. Funny way to peal off the eggshell by blowing it through two holes. Unusual way to eat eggs!
  3. Dissolving the eggshell by soaking it into vinegar to get a naked bouncy egg.
  4. Magically drop a whole egg into a bottle experiment - with burning paper, using gas pressure from hot air
  5. How to chemically cook eggs with alcohol without making fire
  6. Walking on egg trays without breaking the shells
  7. How to tell if an egg is boiled (cooked) or not by simply spinning it and checking the speed
  8. Egg sinking and floating density experiment with pure tap water, salted liquid and spoon
  9. Is it possible to balance a chicken egg vertically?
  10. Boiled egg heated in a barbecue grill

Did you ever imagine cooking candy that look like a cluster of purple Amethyst crystals?

This is an unusual and totally awesome gift idea to surprise your loved one or used for party decoration in spiritual rituals, magic parties and meditation classes.

Ingredients & Materials:

  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • flour
  • fondant icing (or milk chocolate + unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • food coloring
  • aluminum foil
  • cooking oil spray

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Warm sugar in water until you get supersaturated sugary liquid. Then add come food coloring until you get the desired shade.
  2. Roll out white fondant on non-stick backing paper to a fairly thin layer
  3. Take grey fondant and add some chunks of darker colors to it. Mix them roughly to get different variations in colors. Then roll it out to a very thin thickness.
  4. Put white fondant on top of the mixed grey fondant with a some water rubbed in between
  5. Sculpt the fondant inside a bowl with a layer of aluminum foil wrapped around to create the uneven natural rock shape
  6. Pour the sugar syrup on top and wrap up the whole thing with aluminum foil
  7. Leave it to crystallize for at least 12 hrs, pour out excess liquid and leave it to dry

PS. above method uses fondant icing (often used in cakes), you can also make these delicious candy edible science experiment with candy milk or white chocolate with cocoa powder.

Steve Spangler shows us how to have lots of fun with cornstarch on Ellen show.

Did you know that corn starch when mixed with water can become extremely solid under sudden pressure? ...and it will even bounce back when you punch?

This is an amazing idea for kids birthday party, middle school children will love it! And so much fun even for adults too!

These are some really cool science experiments you can do at home with kids, great for Christmas, Halloween or other holiday party ideas.

Steves shows us how to use dry ice and hot water in cylinders with dish soap to create awesome gassy smoke bubbles that you can safely touch. Turn your living room into magical wonderland with these mystical white smokes from dry ice, perfect for many party occasions.

Or how about making your bottle of Pringle chips explode with hydrogen and oxygen burning inside?

All you need is a balloon filled with hydrogen gas and drill a hole in the Pringles bottle. Then fire it up... and wait for the surprise!  The potato chips are even edible after the experiment!

Lastly, a crazy Halloween experiment with carved pumpkin using hydrogen peroxide mixed with soap. Watch the pumkin explosion with smoky purple throw up.

Have lots of fun and happy experimenting :)

In this fun and yummy science experiment, you'll learn how to make an edible candy crystal forming around a string, a perfect diy project for holiday celebration to decorate Christmas trees with real sweets you can eat!

What you need

  • cane sugar
  • water
  • microwave safe container
  • glass jar
  • pencil
  • food coloring
  • string

Note: adult supervision is recommended.

How to make it

  1. Pour 3 cups sugar into a microwave safe container
  2. Add 2 cups of water, stir it up thoroughly until the solution dissolves
  3. Set it on high inside microwave for 2 minutes, take it out and stir again
  4. Put in on microwave on high again for another 2 minutes, and stir one more time
  5. Add about 7 drops of food coloring of your choice (can be green, red, blue, orange, etc.) and stir again
  6. Transfer the whole solution to a glass jar
  7. Take the pencil and tie the string around the middle of it, then cut he string so its length is shorter the the height of the glass jarr
  8. Soak the string into the solution inside the jar, then take it out and lay it to dry on the sheet of was paper; wait for the solution to cool down to room temperature
  9. Soak the dry string into the solution again and leave it there for at least 1 week. Pull it out and watch miracle happen as the sugary liquid crystallize around the string!

For this crazy kitchen experiment you'll need:

  1. Marshmallows
  2. Microwave oven
  3. Adult supervision

Put marshmallows into microwave for about 30 seconds and watch them explode. Just be careful not to touch the marshmallows, because it's very hot.

How does it work?

Marshmallows, just like popcorns, have tiny water droplets trapped inside. They create tiny bubbles of moist air that when heated expand very quickly, building up pressure inside marshmallow and making them grow really big.
