My oldest son, C, inherited my husband's love for surprises. The two of them could play Hide and Seek for days. They both burst out in uncontrollable laughter every time the other person jumps out from behind a closed door. Maybe that's why C loves this secret message activity so much. With just a few quick sweeps of his paintbrush, he's able to solve a mystery and discover a hidden secret.

How We Did It

Then I invite C to join me. He uses watercolor paints to brush over the card, revealing the secret message below.

Voila! Mystery solved. C loves discovering the surprise and I love the simple prep and clean up. It's a win-win for everyone.
