Procedure

  1. Step 1

    Use the knife to cut the lemon in half.

  2. Step 2

    Squeeze the juice from one of the halves into the bowl.

  3. Step 3

    Add a few drops of water into the bowl––just enough to dilute the yellow color from the lemon juice. Then, mix with the spoon.

  4. Step 4

    Dip one of the cotton swabs into the ink and use it like a paintbrush to write your super secret message.

  5. Step 5

    To read your secret message, hold the paper close to (but not touching) the lamp... and watch as its secrets are revealed.
