Messages Hidden in Secret Codes

This free New Year’s printable gives kids a secret code to solve to reveal the key to having an amazing new year. It reinforces kindness in its message – something that everyone can agree on!

We’ve also included a secret code key and the answer to the message in case you want to check it or give your kids some hints on how to solve the code.

We have found that messages are much more fun when delivered in this sneaky way!  Something that may not have been fully considered when simply written out has a bigger meaning when it is turned into a coded message.

How to Complete the Secret Code

In order to solve this New Year’s secret code, you have to determine which numbers stand for which letters. They are not in order and the numbers do not correspond to the letter’s placement in the alphabet.

Instead, the code requires kids to take some guesses and do some critical thinking and problem-solving.

If you get stuck you can always look at or print out the answer key!

We made it a separate page instead of the second page of the printable, so that you didn’t see the answer by accident.
