Scrambled Words!

image of scrambled words documentI got this idea from watching the programs you can buy where you type in a word or phrase and then it prints out a page that has symbols that you have to decode using a key below. There are four different versions for four different fonts. The idea is if you don't have one font maybe you will have one of the others. Webdings is probably the best. Be sure to read the instructions they contain some good tips for creating these. All files are in Microsoft Word.
