Preparation: Print or make a copy of the mystery code clipart below. Make messages using this code for the children to decipher.
Directions: This idea works well for messages about any lesson you may be teaching. For example, if your Sharing Time lesson was about prophets you could make a bunch of codes that say, Gordon B. Hinckley, Joseph Smith, Lehi, etc, and hand them out. Then show the kids the mystery code chart and let them decipher their codes. When they're done have them read them out loud and then ask the children to guess what they lesson is about.
