    Wondering what to do with that first, precious egg (besides eating it, or letting it rot while you show it off to your friends)? Well here's what we did: BLOW THE EGG.

    How to blow an egg:

    Rinse the egg.

    Start by poking two holes in it, one smaller at the top, and one larger at the bottom. Use a regular sewing needle. Be careful not to crack the egg.

    Stick the needle into the bigger hole and swish it around, the goal is to break the yoke so that it is easier to blow out.

    Blow on the smaller hole. (Make sure that the insides will come out on a paper towel, or in a bowl, otherwise it could be a mess.) If possible, have a helpful volunteer swish the needle around inside the egg while you blow. This speeds up the process.

    Once you have most of the whites and yolk out, put a bit of water in it via the tap and the bigger hole. Blow it out again. Repeat until it is only water coming out.

    Ta dah! You're done! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
