Secret Letter Crayon Resistance Activity

Secret Letter Crayon Resistance Activity

This "hidden message" activity is such a fun one to try with your kids! They are always surprised at the secret letters or drawings that are revealed when they paint their paper! 

    Here's what you need: 

    • White Paper
    • White Crayon
    • Watercolor Paints
    • Paintbrush
    • Water or Spray Bottle 

    Start by writing the alphabet, your kid's name, or draw your favorite character or object with the white crayon. 

    You may need to go over the lines a few times. 

    Generously soak your watercolor paints with water. 

    Begin painting your paper completely. You will start to see the words or drawings appear as you add color. 

    You will notice that the crayon resists the color. The color makes the crayon pop! Enjoy watching the secret letters come to life.
