Egg in the Bottle Experiment

We are trying to wrap up our bird lapbook but, with me having the flu, it will be challenging. One of the things we have liked about this lapbook is the fun little crafts and experiments that have been included. I already posted about the delicious bird nests that we made out of chow mein noodles and melted chocolate. Today I'd like to tell you that the old egg in a bottle experiment is quick, easy, fun and quite entertaining. Unfortunately, it happens so quick you can't really get good photos of it happening.
Here's Mika inspecting the egg and the bottle (we used a frappuccino bottle). She couldn't figure out how we were going to get that egg in that bottle.

Look! One egg inside one bottle! It just popped right in there.

Then there is a trick for getting the egg back out of the bottle that is equally baffling...you blow into the bottle. Sammy is showing you that the egg is now back out of the bottle.

The kids love these type of little kitchen experiments. They tend to get excited about them and wish I would do more of them. Unfortunately, science is not my strong subject and I have a hard time understanding why things happen well enough to explain it to the kids.
