Today I’m back with another fun decoder wheel printable – this time I used my Valentine’s Day Decoder wheel to create printable valentines! These sweet valentine’s are perfect for code-solvers, spy enthusiasts, detectives and sleuths! The Secret Code Valentines are perfect for classroom valentines or for family and friends.

Can you crack the code to case #0214?? Use the decoder wheel to solve the coded message. The key is listed at the bottom of the valentine. Spin the decoder wheel so the letter S matches up with the SUN and you’re ready to solve the message. 

Valentine is open to show the message, "I Spy A Great Friend", that was decoded using the decoder wheel.

These valentines are available as an instant digital download PDF packet. Print as many as you need and then assemble them following the directions below.

Supplies Needed:

Step by Step Instructions

Step One: Print and cut out the valentine printables.

Print the valentine printables and cut out the pieces. Use a paper trimmer if you have one to print the rectangle pieces. Use a scissors to cut out the wheels. 

For one valentine, print page 3 of the packet. For 6 valentines, print page 1 twice and page 2 once.

Step Three: Use a brad to create the spinning decoder wheel.

Layer the inner wheel piece on top of the wheel printed on the valentine. Line up the images with the letters. Use a push pin and carefully poke a hole in the center of the wheel piercing both layers. Use a small brad to hold both layers together.

Step Four: Add the to and from label.

Cover the back of the brad with the small rectangle that says TO and FROM. Try to position the To and From lines below the brad so you can still easily write in the names. You could also write the To and From lines before attaching it.
