Easy Cryptogram Treasure Hunt

This is a very simple treasure hunt to create.  There are many cryptogram generators on the web, but this is one that I like:

  • Type in the hiding place of your treasure under "Build your own cryptogram".
  • Click "Create"
  • Click "Solution included in code table but blanks are not filled in" (this option is the easist to solve)
  • Click "Build Cryptogram"

Here is an example of one that I created...

Answer:  "Look in the mailbox"
(The prize was hidden there.)



This one is sooooooo easy, that you can use it for things that you'd be giving them anyway.

For example, the "treasure" could simply be a note that says:

"We're going to McDonalds!"
(or DisneyWorld) :-)


(Note:  At Easter, I cut up my phrase and placed the puzzle pieces inside plastic eggs.  First they had to find the eggs, then work together to solve the puzzle.)



This is an easy way to make something ordinary a little more fun...try it and let me know what you think!
