Super Secret Spy Mission
White paper (the thicker the better we found!)
- A white crayon
- Water coloured paint / watered down paint
- Paint brushes
This super simple activity was a huge hit with my girls! They loved preparing a secret message to each other and really concentrated on what they were trying to achieve.
Using the white crayon, write your secret message. I wrote one for my girls, whilst they drew each other pictures. My 5 year-old, wrote a simple message too and I provided an alphabet sheet as this is something she is interested in! This activity is great for practicing pencil grip and control whilst also supporting imagination through illustrations. We also chatted about the magic of what was happening and why we could not see the white crayon whilst writing!
Using the watery paint, lightly paint over the crayon marks to reveal the message!
We found some bits revealed themselves quicker than others, which made the whole experience even more magical!
