Invisible Ink with Lemon Juice

Making invisible ink is a lot of fun, you can pretend you are a secret agent as you keep all your secret codes and messages hidden from others. All you need is some basic household objects and the hidden power of lemon juice. ( Please remember that this must be done with adult supervision! )

What you'll need:
    •    Half a lemon
    •    Water
    •    Spoon
    •    Bowl
    •    Cotton bud
    •    White paper
    •    Lamp or other light bulb

    1.    Squeeze some lemon juice into the bowl and add a few drops of water.
    2.    Mix the water and lemon juice with the spoon.
    3.    Dip the cotton bud into the mixture and write a message onto the white paper.
    4.    Wait for the juice to dry so it becomes completely invisible.
    5.    When you are ready to read your secret message or show it to someone else, heat the paper by holding it close to a light bulb.

What's happening?
Lemon juice is an organic substance that oxidizes and turns brown when heated. Diluting the lemon juice in water makes it very hard to notice when you apply it the paper, no one will be aware of its presence until it is heated and the secret message is revealed. Other substances which work in the same way include orange juice, honey, milk, onion juice, vinegar and wine. Invisible ink can also be made using chemical reactions or by viewing certain liquids under ultraviolet (UV) light

+_ 4 or more empty 2lt plastic ice cream containers ( depending on the size of the tray used above)

To start you need to half fill the ice cream containers with water and freeze .
Drill two holes in the front of your plastic tray/bath to make the handle using the rope.
Now take the ice out the containers and drill 4 to 8 holes in the ice (slowly).
Turn the tray/bath upside down place the ice on it to mark the container so you can drill the container.
