This isn't going to help with Global Warming, but couldn't you just see Ivy & Bean writing secret messages to one another using Invisible Ink? Thanks to Morgan over in the Kid's Department at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena for the idea. As we chatted about book 7, science fairs, Ivy & Bean, we couldn't help but think that both Ivy & Bean would love this idea.
Here is a video on how to make Invisible Ink:
Here is a different recipe from Kidzworld.com on how to make invisible ink:
Invisible Ink the Baking Soda Way
Mix about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of baking soda and 1/4 cup (60 ml) of water. Next, write using a Q-tip, toothpick or brush on a piece of paper. Let it dry completely. To read the secret message, paint grape juice concentrate across the paper with a paint brush or a sponge. Don't forget - grape juice stains. Why it works: Grape juice has an acid that reacts with the baking soda. A different color appears wherever the secret message is written.
