Secret Letters

Inspired by Unplug Your Kids, today we made some invisible ink and wrote a few letters. I mixed up the two ink concoctions. The first was fresh lemon juice. The second was a mixture of equal parts baking soda and water. Armed with cotton swabs, the kiddos worked on their mysterious letters. Aine enjoyed creating drawings and notes with her invisible ink.
Eamon did a few drawings, but worked mostly on decoding the messages. He used a light bulb to read his invisible ink.
I wrote my letter for the 4th week of the 52 project to my niece Ashlyn using the invisible ink. I used both types of ink and even drew a picture for her. I am sure she will like using her detective skills to read the letter.
