With Some Juice And Baking Soda, You Can Make An Invisible Ink For Your Kids

Secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets are for everyone.

We’ve all heard the playground mantra…and yet, kids still LOVE secrets. Instead of encouraging them to keep them from you and their friends, show your little ones how to make fun, disappearing ink that can hide secrets and then reveal them with a magical solution!

Start out by mixing together equal parts baking soda and water.


Have your kids dip a paintbrush in the mix and write a message.


Then have another child dip a paintbrush in some grape juice concentrate and watch for the grand reveal!

What a simple craft to amaze your kids with! Check out other fun projects on Skip to my Lou, too.
