    Use background colour for your worksheet.
    • While typing out your worksheets, if you use TextEdit as your document, you can add background colour to the text.
    • If you use regular crayons, coloured-pencils, etc., make sure you choose a light colour so the writing/font shows. If you use writing, you may not want to add background colour, as this may smear the ink of the pen.

Tips

  • Since worksheets are for students to work on assignments on them, you may no want to add colour, designs, coloured font/writing, or different types of font if the worksheets are for school.
  • Try adding small pictures too, such as a small rainbow on both sides of the worksheet.
  • Create patterns. If you have a striped pattern, you could try drawing a "mini-picture" inside one of the stripes. Then colour it in.
  • You don't have to outline writing with a pen if you write dark enough. You may not want to anyway since the ink can smear easily sometimes, unless you wait long enough and then colour behind the ink.
