Making invisible ink is a fun & easy summer activity for kids. You can write secret messages for them to decode or vice-versa!
You will need:
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 2 Tablespoons Water
- Cotton Swab
- Blank White Paper
- Grape Juice
- Small Paintbrush (like a watercolor paintbrush)
First, mix together the water & baking soda in a small bowl or cup. Dip the cotton swab in the solution and write your message on a blank white piece of paper. Let the paper dry for 3-4 hours or overnight.
To decode the secret message, pour a small amount of grape juice in a small bowl or cup and use a small paint brush to paint over the secret message. Your message will appear! The message will become clearer once the grape juice dries.
The message I wrote in invisible ink for Connor was our scripture memory verse for this week:
Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed- Titus 3:1
