  • I am a current subscriber but have not been receiving the weekly newsletter.
Some email services have been known to block certain emails, mistaking them for spam. Please add to your address book/contacts and this should help get the emails through. If you have an alternate email address, you can try subscribing again using that address.

  • Is this a free subscription? Do I have to pay anything?
The subscription is 100% free and you are in no way obligated to buy anything. There are hundreds of free activities on this site and I create new ones on a daily basis. As a subscriber you will have access to all the materials, and you will be notified through the weekly newsletter of all the new ones.

General Questions

  • How do I download the files?
The activities that are available for free to everyone can be downloaded via a text link near the bottom of each post. The text link will say something like "Click here to Download your Free Apple Number Puzzles", for example. Do not click on any of the ads that say "Download". (I am working on removing all of those type of ads) All of the subscriber-only freebies can be found on the subscriber's page. 

  • My child/children are X years old. What activities are appropriate for their age?
All children develop at different rates which is why I have hesitated to categorize the activities by age. However, due to popular request, I am working on adding age categories. Please stay tuned! In the meantime, please browse through the menus or use the search box to find activities.

  • What is the best way to save ink when printing so many pages?
If printing an entire pack or many activities, I recommend selecting the "draft" quality under your printer properties. You should test it out first with a few pages to make sure you like it because the image quality is lower but it also uses a lot less ink.


  • I click on the file link and see a blank page/ there are pages missing/ nothing happens.
Please make sure you are using an updated browser. I usually recommend Google Chrome to those who have problems with the files and this helps resolve most issues.

  • I printed the pack but some pages come out blank or have missing parts.
If you select the "print as image" option it will print exactly as shown in the preview. Here are the steps:
Open up the saved file from your computer, click Print, and the printing option box appears. After selecting your page(s), click on the Advanced button and a new window will open up. Somewhere near the top, check the box that says "Print as image".

  • I printed an activity and some content around the edges was cut off.
Please make sure you select the "Scale to Fit" or "Fit to Print" option when printing so that nothing gets cut off.

  • I see a warning message saying that the file is too large to scan for viruses / My anti-virus program is giving me a warning message.
It seems that the packs which are over 25MB are too large for Google to scan for viruses. However, I assure you there are absolutely no viruses in the files and they are safe to download.
