Invisible Ink

 

By Nikki Willhite

www.allthingsfrugal.com

Children love invisible ink. They love playing
with their friends and writing "secret messages."

Here are the things you need to make it:

Lemon Juice or a lemon wedge.
A bowl.
Toothpicks.
White notebook paper.
Lamp with a 100 watt bulb.

Put 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice into a small bowl. Dip the toothpick into the bowl and write one letter of your message on the paper. Repeat this for each letter.

After the juice dries for ten minutes, it is ready to be read. Put the paper in front of the light bulb. Be sure the shade is off the lamp, and that you donít touch the hot bulb. As the paper heats up, the juice will turn brown and you will see the message.

Caution: Be sure and keep an eye on your children if they are young. If the paper comes into contact with the bulb, it could cause a fire.
