Secret Message Valentines for Dia del Amor y Amistad! I love that in Spanish a common way to to translate Valentine’s Day is saying “Day of Love and Friendship.”

My boys love all things spies, secret agents, mission impossible…. So when  I told my oldest that we were going to write secret messages to his dad and brothers, he was on board.  This is even a super easy Valentine’s card you can have kids make in class or to give to classmates.

I am always looking for simple  ways to make 40 plus Valentines for my boys classmates. One of our desires as parents is to help our boys see that Valentine’s day is not just for lovers but a time to share “nuestra amistad y amor” with our friends, neighbors, those in need…

What you will need for our Secret Message Valentines are basic things you can find around your house.

The “invisible ink” is the white crayon.  The watercolor paint is what helps uncover the secret message!
