Invisible Song

 This time of year, it's fun to think about Halloween costumes, super powers, and magic.  I always thought it would be neat to have the invisibility power and be the "invisible person" for Halloween.  Wouldn't that be something???

To start this singing time in Primary, I pulled out my song papers (6-8), looked through them and said something like, 

"Oh boy.  I thought this might have happened.  When I was walking into church this morning, I dropped my song papers and now all the words and letters have fallen off".  (looking really sad and showing them that there's no words on them ;).  

"Now how are we going to know which songs to sing?????" (thinking)

"Aha!" (looking through my Sunday bag)

"I knew this might come in handy someday!  I thankfully have my magic-ink paintbrush! (pulling out and showing my paintbrush)

"Let's put it to the test and see if it will work!!!!!!"

Put the "blank" song papers up on the chalkboard with magnets and call up a reverent child to come and use the paintbrush to reveal the song!  Then sing!!

Here's how it works:

First, paint/spell the song out with a small paintbrush or Q-Tip.  (Let dry)

Then to reveal the song, use a medium sized paintbrush.  The solution will stain so be sure to use one that is ok to be thrown away/stained - same with the bowl that you use to mix.

Here is the mix solution:

First, invisible ink :  1/2 cup water and 1 Tablespoon baking soda.

Then, magic ink to reveal: 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol mixed with 1 teaspoon turmeric.

**Be sure to scrape excess solution before handing over the paintbrush so that it does not drip!

Easy peasy and soooo fun to watch it be revealed.

I hope this helps you in some way to prepare for your Primary Singing Time.  Let us know if you use it!!!!  Sending love to you all!!!
