    My daughter is doing a science project about this so we decided to take daily pictures of the Candled Egg.
    We are so excited about this.
    *yes I know you shouldn't handle the eggs this much, but it's for fun and we are all learning.

    That is awesome I'm glad your kids are getting to see this, very educational for them and the thing is they find it to be fun(least I hope they do), as extra bonus.

    She's 10 years old and she thinks this is the best thing ever! She loves being able to see it grow a little each day.

    I did some when I was 7 and it was like waking up at christmas every day to go see the progress, we checked our every morning, and even so after they hatched checking to see how they were growing.
