Who can resist a secret message from a friend? White crayon is the “invisible ink” when used on white construction paper. These valentines will reveal their sentiments only when brushed with watercolors. Surprise!

What to Do
  1. For each valentine, draw a heart on white construction paper, and cut it out.
