I’m not saying you can juggle raw eggs without fear of a yolky mess if you drop one. Even science agrees tossing an uncooked egg into the air and failing to catch it will result in an gooey-egg mess. But there are plenty of awesome tricks you can do with eggs that will show that those pre-omelet foodstuffs are a lot hardier and versatile than one might think. Why do I care, you ask? For the simple pleasure of impressing and/or baffling your friends if nothing else. Also, some of these tricks could make cool science experiments for yourself or your kids.
The video below will show you several awesome tricks involving eggs. After seeing some of these, you’ll be sure to reconsider your stance that eggs are frail things that can’t have much done with them beyond breaking them open for a meal. You might even wow your friends, family, or teachers with these neat tricks. And the best part is you don’t need any special equipment to pull most of these off.

That first trick makes separating eggs a total breeze without any fancy equipment. The “Russian way” to peel the egg is a fun way to get kids to help with egg peeling duties, but be careful your kids don’t end up spitting on the eggs in their exuberance to blow them out of their shells.
It is also a fun trick to show your friends, or just to do yourself if you’re bored with peeling! The trick to see if an egg is boiled will also be helpful in your kitchen.
If you are wondering how that last egg in the water density experiment floats in the middle of the glass, it is because the heavily salt water is denser than both the pure water and the egg, so both the egg and the fresher water are floating on top of the water saturated with salt.
