Word Teasers

word-teasers1

For this puzzle, try to tease apart 2 different words of equal length from the nonsense string of characters.  The letters must appear in the string in the same order as they appear in each respective word. For example,

from the string ‘BAUDDY’ you can tease out the words ‘BUY’ and ‘ADD’. You could not make the word ‘DAY’ because the D comes after the A.

This challenge consists of 4 different word teasers, one for 4 letter words, 5 letter words, 6 letter words, and 7 letter words.

Printing out the picture above will give you something to write on to help solve the puzzle more easily.

You can enter your answers in the comment section below; will unmask on Friday
