First Cryptograms

Here are some cryptograms that you can print off to solve.

They are all the first lines of some favourite nursery rhymes or songs.

Each letter has been replaced with a different letter. Can you work out what they should be?

There is a letter grid to help you, and some hints. See if you can solve the cryptograms without using the hints (or just using the first hint...).

The solutions, and some general solving hints, are on the Cryptogram Solutions page.
