## Valentines Day Code

Are you looking for a fun way to tell your kids you love them this Valentine’s Day?

I remember, as a kid, my Dad used his computer to make up secret-coded messages for us and it was so much fun decoding them.  We thought we were super-spies!

Why not challenge your kids with this Cypher Wheel puzzle?  You can even mail it to your kids in an imaginary post office.

## Valentines Day Activities for Kids

We have been studying the Revolutionary War, so our secret coded message goes along with our History activities, but this would make a great addition to your Valentines Day activities for kids.

The Cypher Wheel has two parts…the dark yellow outside is one part, & the light yellow inside circle is another.  You will notice the inner circle has a small arrow.  This is the key!

Check out this link for a printable version of the cypher wheels:

Cut out both wheels, making sure to leave the little arrow on the small wheel.  Attach the wheels together in the center so they can still move (the site suggests a brad, we used Fun Tack).  You are now ready to create your secret message!

1.  Write a message using only letters from the alphabet (no numbers). The cypher wheel has only 24 letters…so for a “J” put a “Y” and for a “Q” put an “O”.

2. Pick a single letter from the alphabet.  Write this down as the first letter of your encrypted message (don’t use J or Q  because they’re not on the wheel).  In my picture example above, I chose H.  You can see my encrypted message begins with “H”.

3. Rotate the wheel until the black arrow points the letter you have just picked.  This letter is the “Key”…so your child will need both the cypher and the key to solve your puzzle!

4.  Don’t move the wheel!  Now, for each letter of your original message, find that letter on the outer wheel & write down the letter that is exactly below it on the inner wheel.  When finished you will have your encrypted message!

How Your Kids Can Solve The Valentines Day code:

1. Surprise them with the special secret message and only ONE part of the cypher wheel!  Hide the key (inner circle) and send them on a scavenger hunt to find it!  Give them clues that take them from place to place until they’ve found the key.  Now they’re ready to decode!

2.  Show them the first letter of the secret message…explain that this is the key!  Line up the little black arrow on the key with the correct letter on the cypher wheel.  This special first letter is not part of the message.

3. For each letter of the secret message, find that letter on the inner wheel and write down the letter that is directly above it on the outer wheel.

4.  Check they Y’s and O’s.  See if the message makes more sense with a J or a Q instead.

Your kids will have a blast figuring out their special message…and you’ll secretly know you’ve challenged their brains at the same time!  Who knows, your cipher to your child might end up stored with your child treasures.

6. Dear, thanks on your remark. men and women are so brain-washed nowadays while using the Alopathic medication, they believe antibiotics
are essential in almost every case. I’m getting a strep throat now, and also getting an oregano oil capsules. It together gave me an immense relief. Sure, I am ill for your 6-th working day now, even now having a fever, but i do really feel a lot better. A single just has to feel in one’s
possess ability to arrive outside of the illness. I am also breast-feeding, so are unable to choose antibiotics anyways.
