Crafting for Spies

This is an awesome craft in so many ways.

It requires only a piece of paper, a white wax crayon, a paint brush, some paint and a little water.

It takes less than two minutes to set up but keeps the children entertained for ages. At least long enough for you to be able to enjoy a hot cup of tea

Simply write a message or draw a picture with the crayon on a sheet of regular white paper

Hand the children the paint and let them paint over the message

If the message hasn’t magically appeared, get them to brush over the paint with a LITTLE water and hey presto your secret message will be revealed

Once they’ve got how it works, let them write messages for each other

It is a great way to encourage children to read and write and also for younger ones to recognise numbers, letters or shapes but most importantly it is a whole lot of fun
