I'm so excited to be sharing one of my most popular posts of 2015 with you along with some of the best education, craft and parenting posts of the past year from a group of talented bloggers. Although I have already featured some of my 5 most popular posts from the past year, I want to feature here one of the most fun posts to create and share.
Featured Post: Best of 2015
Saturday Science Experiment: Spies and CSIs has 3 different spy themed activities, 2 different methods for making 'invisible ink' messages (without heat or flame!) and a fingerprinting activity that does not involve ink. I love these activities because they are engaging and fun, but also safe enough that children can do this with just a little help from an adult.
Who doesn't want to create a secret message? Although the invisible ink activity is super fun, the traditional method of lemon juice and a heat source isn't the most safe or kid-friendly way to do it.
The pencil graphite and scotch tape method of lifting fingerprints gives such a clear fingerprint, not smudgy like with ink. Kids can really take a good look at their arches and whorls! You'll find easy to follow step-by-step instructions on the post.
