We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Funtivity Friday - Secret Codes

When we used to get the newspaper, one of the daily puzzles was the Cryptoquote. The Cryptoquote was a message in secret code. Every letter in the message stood for a different letter. We decided to make up our own secret messages. In the newspaper, the secret messages were called Cryptoquotes because the messages were always quotes. Ours are not. Also, while you can make a code where one letter stands for another letter, that is not the only way to do it. We decided to try different ways to make secret messages. Below are three different methods for creating secret codes.




1) Substitute One Letter for Another.



2) Substitute Numbers for Letters.


3) Substitute Symbols for Letters

If you want to make it a little easier for someone to solve your quote or if you are making a quote for younger children provide an answer key as to what letter, number, or symbol stands for what letter. If you want to make it a little harder or you are working with older children or adults, you can let them try to figure out what letter, number, or symbol stands for what letter.

Enjoy!
