Nature Man's became a crab, without a moment of hesitation. He just took off on it.
The Artist thought for a moment and started on a shark picture. I wouldn't have guessed this for her!
Dash transformed his doodle into a fire-breathing dragon on top of a castle. He wouldn't pose for an individual picture, but was more than happy to stand for a group shot. :-) Little Lad scribbled at the table the entire time, and wasn't interested in posing.
I was just as impressed with these!
Nature Man's page became a picture of ferocious sabertooth tigers.
The Artist's page turned into "the perfect sunshade and hammock."
Next up on Fun Activities today: Invisible Ink!
We used milk, but you can also do it with other *substances.
The Q-tips didn't work nearly as well as a small tip paint brush.
Wait for the milk to dry so it becomes completely invisible. If much liquid is used, it can cause some warping of the paper. It helps if you have another "fake" message going the opposite direction.
When you are ready to read your secret message or show it to someone else, heat the paper by holding it close to a light bulb or iron. We used a candle today, which was fine the first time around. On the second try, I ended up sprinting to the sink with a flaming page.
See, stupidity in action, below.
Milk is an organic substance that oxidizes and turns brown when heated. *Other substances which work in the same way include orange juice, honey, lemon juice, onion juice, vinegar, soda and wine...
and sweat, saliva, & urine, if you're in a fix.
