Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs: Experiment with Kids


How long does it take to get your perfect boiled egg?


How do you like your egg? My son loves hardboiled eggs for his snacks. I like smooth, softer yolk, and my son loves super hardboiled well-done yolk. How long should we boil then? Let’s try this experiment and find out how many minutes we need to make our perfect boiled eggs!

*Caution* Do not try this experiment without adult supervision.


What We Used

  • 6 eggs
  • Soup pan
  • Water
  • Tongs or ladle (I preferred tongs)
  • Stopwatch (phone) 
  • Papers to write down how many minutes

After tasting! Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs: Experiment with Kids

Here is our opinion after the tasting.
My son: He thought that 12 minutes and 15-minute are the best! Those are well-done, and he loved them.
My opinion: I loved 6 minutes boiled egg the best. It was not too runny, and the yolk was very creamy.
My husband: He loved the 4-minute one the best with runny yolk with a creamy aftertaste.

We all know which yolk is our favorite and how long we need to wait after boiling water. Great success!
