- Paper towels
- Permanent marker black
- Washable markers any colors

- Take a sheet of paper towel and fold it in half like a greeting card.
- On the top of the paper towel, write math equations in permanent marker -- as many as you'd like or can fit on the sheet. Leave the answer space blank.
- On the bottom half, directly beneath the blank space you left for the answer to each problem, write the answer in a colorful washable marker.
- Add water to a dish, just enough to cover the bottom.
- When you place the folded paper towel in the dish of water, the answers to the equations will appear!
