Secret Valentine's Day Messages

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Children's Busy Book

Instead of handing out traditional valentines, your child can use these inventive ideas to send secret messages!


Instead of handing out traditional valentines, your child can send messages in the following fun ways.

Directions

  1. Write on plain white paper with a toothpick dipped in lemon juice. Iron the paper to reveal the message.
  2. Lay several Popsicle sticks side by side to form a square. Lay strips of tape across all the sticks to join them. Turn the square over. Write a message on the front of it. Remove the tape and put the sticks in an envelope. Put the puzzle back together to read the message.
  3. Write on a small valentine card. Roll up the card and insert it into a balloon with some confetti. Blow up the balloon and pop it to reveal the valentine inside.
  4. Blow up a red, pink, or white balloon and pinch the opening shut. Write on the inflated balloon, then deflate it. Blow up the balloon to read the message.
