Did you know that the lemon juice you have sitting in your fridge makes great invisible ink? You can write whatever you want with it and no-one will be able to read the message until heat makes the words turn brown.

It's the kind of knowledge that kids can have all sorts of fun with. It's also good for school projects, and I'm sure parents will find uses for it too, as the finished product does look quite cool.

Time: 10 minutes

Materials
Lemon Juice
Paintbrush
Paper
Lid or small container
Toaster
