Mrs. Dickens likes Paul’s picture of a sailboat better than Alexander’s picture of an invisible castle. On a white piece of paper, paint a picture using lemon juice. (As you paint you will be able to see the juice. When the juice dries, it will be invisible.) When your painting dries, have a parent press it with an iron. The heated lemon juice will turn brown, revealing your artwork. Mount your picture on construction paper.
