Printing Tips



All the pages in the website are printer friendly in any device: mobile or PC. All advertising, bottom border and YouTube video links will be ignored in the printing process.

A printable template is any image that opens in a separate window with a top border with a print link: crafts, coloring pages, worksheets, color posters, printable games (dot-to-dots, etc.). These only print correctly in portrait mode and 'headers and footers' removed.

The calendars, fables and a few featured stories print correctly in portrait (smaller version) and landscape mode (larger version), select your preference, preview and print. Magins set to Standard in Chrome or minimum in other browsers.
