The Classic Rubber Egg

READY IN: 48hrs 5mins
Recipe by MTpockets

This one is for the kids or the young at heart. It's not really meant to be eaten. More like something fun for Halloween or just to hear the kids yell "Ewww, GROSS!" You could use it for your Halloween haunted house etc. Just blindfold someone and let them feel this. (Makes good "eyeballs") Posted as a request.

This was definitely a fun project, but too messy with just two days in the vinegar. I made 3 dozen for Easter and included food dye in the vinegar and they became really pretty colors. The membrane was about as thick as a balloon (some much less than that), so the kids could barely play with them before they would break. Then the dog choked on the membrane. I would try this again leaving the eggs in for a week to see if it would make them stronger.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the uncooked egg (in it's shell) in a glass jar and pour vinegar in the jar until egg is completely covered.
  2. Let the egg sit for at least two day's and then pour off the vinegar.
  3. Now you'll have a fun "gross-to-the-touch" fascinating object. (Don't most kids like gross stuff?!) Just peel and put in a bowl to touch the "eyeball".
