Yolks Fly During Crossroads At Big Creek EGGstravaganza

Eggs flew through the air Saturday during the annual Crossroads at Big Creek EGGstravaganza as little kids and big kids explored just how hard they could toss the eggs before they cracked open.

The EGGstravaganza was no Easter egg hunt. It was a straight up lesson on egg structure, strength and variation that didn’t seem like a lesson at all. Crossroads Director Coggin Heeringa led the activities as rain sprinkled down outside of the Collins Learning Center.

Nam Nguyen, 4, of Madison reacts as he catches an egg tossed by his grandma, Cheryl Chaudoir, on Saturday during the Crossroads at Big Creek EGGstravaganza. Nam and his sister Mailynn are visiting their grandparents in Sturgeon Bay for the Easter holiday.

 

When Heeringa distributed the eggs some lasted no longer than ten seconds, while others made it out of the experiment alive. There was no time wasted on cleaning up, Heeringa explained that the birds would take care of the broken shells strewn about because they eat them for the calcium content.

And about that egg that burst open on a window of the Collins Learning Center?

“It’ll rain tonight,” said Heeringa with a smile.

Seven-year-old Mailynn Nguyen of Madison drops an egg that her grandpa, Bill Chaudoir, tossed to her. Luckily the ground was soft enough the egg didn't break...this time. Mailynn and her little brother Nam participated in the Crossroads at Big Creek annual EGGstravaganza Saturday afternoon.
