The Ghost Writer Treasure Hunt

For this treasure hunt, write a message with a sharp white crayon on white paper (press hard!).  If you sit near a bright window, you will be able to somewhat see what you are doing.  I hid a small treat and handed my kids what looked like a blank piece of paper.  To reveal the message, they had to scribble across the paper with a fat, Crayola-type marker.  (Option:  This also works using a white colored pencil instead of a crayon, but it's not quite as readable.)


Example:


The message:


This note was written with invisible ink...
I used a ghostly color to make you think!

Now that you've solved it, you'll get a reward...
So look in the cupboard where towels are stored.


The treat from the Ghost Writer...
