Perplexing Puzzles 2/5/14

Today's free puzzle is a substitution cipher! There is a secret message encoded using Moon Type, which is an embossed alphabet created for the blind. We won't be embossing the letters in this puzzle, but looking at the shapes of the symbols instead.

The really fun part of today's puzzle is the Decoder Ring! Print the Decoder on card stock (stiff paper). Cut out the circles and the small notch, then layer the smaller circle on top of the larger circle and insert a brad in the center. Here's what they look like...

Moon Type Decoder Ring Puzzle

My brads were HUGE!  I would recommend smaller brads so the information in the center of the ring doesn't get covered up.  Once your Decoder Rings are constructed, your kids can have hours of fun writing up secret messages for their siblings and friends!

Just click on the picture above to download the puzzle sheet and decoder.

I hope you enjoy these!
