Puzzle - make your own or download mine
The puzzles comprise of a series of pictures, each picture representing a letter of the NATO phonetic alphabet. The scouts need to work out what each picture is of, hence what letter it represents, and decode the message.
When they have done a few puzzles they could then devise their own for another team to solve.
Use the messages in the download, or download the font "Alpha Bravo" to make your own, or just draw pictures.
