Whimsical Themes

There is no telling what will end up on this page. The themes represented here are meant solely to tweak your children's imagination and encourage them to write. The handwriting rules will vary and some files might be available with and without handwriting rule.

Oval Handwriting Rule

Oval paper I had an idea today and this paper is the result. I hope this whimsical style encourages writing and drawing.

Oval Handwriting Rule

The rule is approximately 1/4 inch, but it seems larger because the top is open.

Bowl Handwriting Rule

Oval paper After making the Oval rule above, I decided to make one more. This one is "Bowl."

Treasure Map - Large Ruled

I made this for Michelle, one of my online friends, a few years ago.

Treasure Map Ruled

Not Ruled
The file is CROPPED. That means you have choices. In Page Scale under Page Handling, which should show up when you press the Print button, choose NONE to print the image small. To print it larger, choose FIT TO PRINTABLE AREA.

When printing [horizontal] landscape oriented files, make certain that Auto Rotate and Center is checked.

Page Scaling: None

Before deciding on NONE, look at the representative image and the file size. The treasure map, set at None + Auto Rotate and Center, prints approximately 9.8 x 6.6. If that size is good, then print.
If you want the file to print even smaller, select Fit to Printable Area and uncheck Auto Rotate and Center.


Fit to Printable Area

If you want the file to print as large as possible, choose Fit to Printable Area + Auto Rotate and Center. Note: The settings that you choose will stick for the next printing job, so be sure to review them each time.
