• 5 to 10 minutes


  • Plastic tub or bowl
  • Liquid detergent
  • Hand-cranked eggbeater


  1. The eggbeater is a tool that is safe, noisy, and fun to use. Fill the tub with water and add a squirt of liquid detergent.
  2. Then step back and let your child experience the fun of a hand-generated motor.


  • Add a drop of yellow food coloring to one side of the tub and a drop of red to the other.
  • Use real eggs to beat, and cook them after they are beaten to a frothy stage.
