Pretty Printables

I love pretty printables! I enjoy creating them, using them, and sharing them with others. If you like printables, too, you’ve come to the right place. Our family website offers a treasure trove of pretty & practical printable resources — calendars, chore charts, coloring pages, and much, much more.

A few words about using our printables:

  • FOR PERSONAL USE – We provide these resources free of charge as a ministry, from one happy family to another! You can save our printables to your own computer and print as many copies as you like for your own personal use..
  • SHARING WITH FRIENDS – You are welcome to share these printables with others, as well, either by printing copies to give to friends and family (for free — please don’t sell them!) or by sending them a link to our blog or to this “free printables” page.
  • LINKING GUIDELINES – Want to share some of our printables on social media? We’d love that! We only ask that you link to the original blog posts, not directly to the PDF files. And please do not upload any of our PDF files to your own blog — send your followers back to our site to download.
  • TIME SAVING TIP – Although we offer most of our printables for free, we know it can be time consuming to download each file individually. For that reason, we do offer themed collections of our most popular printables for purchase in our shop, so you can download extensive categories of printables in a single click.
Smart Uses for Flanders Family Printables

Clever uses for our pretty printables:

Bible Memory Printables

Word on Wednesday Posts

Bucket Lists

Whether you’re looking for new family read-alouds, fun but frugal activities to do with your kids, new ways to celebrate cherished holidays, or tips for keeping a tidy home, our concise and colorful bucket lists have you covered!

Top 50-Things Charts

Why 50 things? Because it’s a nice round number — and for several of our lists, you can tackle a different item every week for a year, taking two weeks off for good behavior. For our Christmas Countdown, do two a day December 1-25. For the summer bucket list, try five per week for the ten weeks you’re off from school.

Miscellaneous Bucket Lists

These lists don’t fit the theme, but are still fun and useful. If long bucket lists stress you out, use one of our simple “5 Things” templates to design your own!


We’ve moved all our calendars to their very own page! As you can see below, we offer a variety of styles. Check out our FREE PRINTABLE CALENDARS page download any or all of our pretty printable calendars for this year, next year, or any of the years we’ve offered in the past!

  • Extend Your Reach – here is a handy chart of daily chores & activities kids should do before spending time on digital devices
  • Computer Time Log – here is a simple time log to monitor how screen time is being utilized

Conversation Starters

Get your family talking

The secret to getting family members to open up is by asking open-ended questions — something they can’t answer with a simple “yes” or “no.” Our free printable discussion prompts will fuel many a lively dinnertime discussion, so give them a try!

Diabetes Care Charts

Tools to help diabetics manage their blood sugars:

  1. Big Diabetes Chart — This is the chart we are currently using. I post a new one on the refrigerator every week and file the completed charts in a 3-ring binder.
  2. Diabetes Management Log (Color) — I print these double-sided and staple them together to make a little booklet, but the chart can also be posted on the refrigerator for a visible reminder to check glucose before eating.
  3. Diabetes Management Log (Black & White) — Same basic chart as the one above, with spaces for logging glucometer readings, carb intake, and insulin doses.
  4. Diabetes Monitoring Log (Plain) — This is an old chart we used when our firstborn was diagnosed over 20 years ago
  5. “I Give My Own Shots Now” Chart — We used this chart to bribe our six-year-old into giving his own shots. We awarded points each time he gave an injection himself and took away points every time he lost his kit. Once he earned 100 points, he won a prize. It worked like magic.

As a mother who’s had three sons diagnosed with Type 1 (the youngest at just 22 mo.), I urge you to learn the symptoms of diabetes, so you’ll recognize them if you see them.


Here are a few free printables we’ve used in tracking our family’s finances over the years (and teaching our children to do the same):

Gospel Tracts

Share the good news!

Isaiah 52:7 says, ““How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” And I could say the same thing about our pretty printable gospel tracts. They are cute as a button, but they also pack a powerful truth!

Greeting Cards & Gifts

Folded Cards with Envelopes

All our cards are blank inside, so you can write your own heartfelt greeting. I keep a stack of white card stock for printing these cards, as that is slightly heavier paper and makes for more professional looking cards.

  1. On your printable high school transcript, should I be able to type on it when I download it? I was hoping so, but I can’t. If I should be able to, please let me know how? Thank you!

  2. Can I sign up for this website so I can get your Christmas games without sighing up for Instagram? I don’t want an Instagram account.

  3. Thank you so much for the pretty and useful printables! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning after finding this page! Thank you for blessing moms with your site and work!


  5. I stumbled across your prayers for husband and wife while on Pinterest. I’ve been married 25 years and have been looking for something like that. They are perfect! Thank you so much for sharing. Im also going to make prints for my daughter who just got married 3 months ago.

  6. Hi! I love your website! So many great resources! Thank you! Will you be creating a 2021-2022 school calendar soon? Looking forward to it! Thank you!

      1. Thank you so very much for doing these calendars from year to year. I love them and use them yearly. Blessings to you and your family. Thank you again! Very useful and helpful!

  7. Hello! I am wondering if you might have the 2021-22 Academic Calendar for July 2021 through June 2022 available yet? I see the 2020-21 but not the 21-22. Thank you!

    1. I’m totally looking for the 2022 calendar year too 🙂 your calendar is exactly what I’m looking for with boxes and I can’t seen too find it ANYWHERE! 🙂

  8. I love, love, love your website. We have two granddaughters who are college freshmen and were finally able to live on campus their second semester. I send them “care packages” to remind them of home and how much we love and miss them. Included in the packages are healthy snack bars (they love them for eating on the run), a pair of pink fluffy foot warmers (February), your Valentine’s Day Quiz (4 copies for a group game, the answer sheet taped with instructions to open only when the quiz was complete), a $5 bill, and your beautiful valentines with scripture messages. The March package contains a bag of jelly beans and the Easter Jelly Bean Gospel with copies for friends, a small tube of shea butter hand lotion, gourmet chocolate eggs, $15 gift card to Starbucks, more snack bars, Who Said What? Quiz with answer sheet, and another $5 bill. I love your printables for these care packages as both girls are attending high academically rated universities and your site offers such nice reminders of spirituality. You can be assured I will be visiting your site to copy and send your inspirational messages with each package. Thank you, thank you,

    1. I love, love, love the creative way you are using our printables to encourage your granddaughters, Lelia. What a smart idea (and what a sweet grandma you are)!

  9. I would just like to say how much I appreciate your website and free printables. Until stumbling on a link in pinterest I had been piece milling printables together from different sources. Now I only have to go to one place for now. This is a true blessing to have access to your resources. Thank you.

    1. My kids are musical, but I am not as good as they are, so I need the answers to the Christmas Music Name That Song so that I can emcee the game at our Christmas gathering. Are you able to email me the answers? Thanks!

      1. I just sent them to you directly, Marc. The answer key was actually linked in the original post, but I’m going to go back and try to make it easier to find, as you are not the first reader who’s written to me about that. Thanks for playing along!

          1. Yes, Mark. I sent you the answers directly as soon as I got your message. But now I’ve made it much easier to find the solutions in my post. Next time, you’ll be able to simply click on the button below the quiz and download both versions plus the answer keys.

  10. Do you have any Thanksgiving tracts? we are looking for something to print and place in food boxes around thanksgiving.

      1. You are amazing! I printed 75 today for our churches food boxes for those in need of a thanksgiving meal. You have helped us save money and most importantly souls and all for free. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


        1. You are most welcome, Kristin. I am happy to help and appreciate your encouragement and good ideas!

  11. Hi there!
    I just wanted to say thank you for all the amazing, free calendar printables! I am a speech therapist in the schools and these really help to make my yearly planning so much easier! I always print out the academic calendars and use them at home as well as at work. Any chance you have the 2020-2021 academic calendar some place? I typically print them off in August, but could not seem to find the one for this school year.
    Thanks again!

  12. • Hi Flanders Family,
    I just wanted to follow up on my previous email. My daughter was able to
    find the 2020-2021 Academic Calendars on your website. To be honest, I
    still don’t know how she managed to find it because it is not under the
    >Print >Calendar drop down menu, but I’m just thankful. I’m also thankful
    for the breath of fresh air in the internet world. I love the way you
    exude God to your readers. Thank you for more than just time-saving
    calendars. Thank you for life-saving words.


    1. Hi, Liz.

      Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. My computer has been in the shop for 2 weeks, so I’ve had a unplanned breather from the Internet myself! I’m so glad your daughter was able to find the calendar you were looking for. I plan to update my printables page and put that in a more obvious place as soon as I get my computer back, because I’ve been getting a lot of messages from folks like you who’ve had a hard time finding it. So sorry for the hassle on that! Hope you have a great school year.


  13. Last year, I came across your website and fell in love with the Academic Calendar (Aug-July). I love everything about it: the soft colors, the perfectly sized rectangles to keep track of each school day, and the grid. I also love that you have your website on the bottom of the page, which made it easy for me to find you again this year. After visiting your website, I wondered if you happen to have an updated 2020-2021 copy. I couldn’t find one. If you have a template, I am more than willing to update it for you. Thank you so much for this incredible act of service to so many.

  14. Any chance are you going to make a 2020-2021 Academic Calendar. I love your format and we use it for our homeschool attendance. Thank You.

    1. Yes, Crystal. All my 2021 calendars are already available; I just haven’t added them to my printables page yet. You can download the one you’re looking for by following this link. Scroll to the bottom of the past for the academic calendar: 2021 Calendars for Advanced Planning

  15. Your calendars are an excellent resource. Thank you for taking the time to make and post them for us to use! Do you have a 2020-21 academic calendar available yet?

  16. Do you have the link for the July 2020-2021 school year calendar available?

    Thanks so much,

    1. Yes, Candice. I’ve already posted it in response to your request and others like it. I just haven’t linked it to this page yet. I’ll try to do that ASAP. In the meantime, you can follow this link to download one today: 2020-2021 Academic Calendar

  17. Good Morning

    I’m trying to find on your web site the 2020-21 School Year (July-June) calendar, and I’m hat having any luck. Could you please send me a copy of it. I have used it here at our school with our classified staff for there work days. It’s a wonder product.



  18. You have beautiful colouring pages. I am involved with my parish’s children liturgy program and wondered if I could print them out for the kids to colour. At the moment, I am only able to upload a couple of pages for the kids to our website, as we can’t meet in person. Can I put these on our website?

    1. Thanks so much for asking, Leah. You are welcome to post pictures of a few of our coloring pages on your website with links back to our site where families can print them, but please do not upload the actual pdf printable files to your site. That messes up the SEO for my website.

      If you’ll let me know which pages you’re interested in, I’ll send you the jpeg files to use on your site and links to the original posts where the full size printables can be downloaded.

      Once the quarantine is lifted and your parish is meeting again, feel free to print as many copies of any of our printables as you like to distribute to the children in your program. Doing that is something we enthusiastically encourage!

  19. Hi there, I just found your website today and I just wanted to thank you so much! I decided to home school my youngest son earlier this year because of some serious issues my son was having at school. (I pulled him out in December.) And I will be homeschooling two of my other children come September. (My eldest is already graduated.) This website that you have provided and made my search to get all the right tools (printable report cards, transcripts, etc.) so easy. And the fact that there are religious tools available as well, makes it even better. Thank you so much! God bless you and your family!
    Rose from NJ

    1. You are most welcome, Rose. Blessings on your new homeschool journey! I hope you’ll come back to visit (and download more free resources) often! 🙂

  20. Thank you so much for the Piano Notes and Assignments Sheets. It’s come in incredibly handy in having to adjust and teach my piano students suddenly online through Zoom.
    God bless you.

    1. You’re welcome, Carolyn. My kids are doing all their piano lessons through Zoom, too. Or maybe our teacher uses Facetime? Strange days we’re living in, right?

  21. I love your Christmas printouts but I cannot seem to find the answers to the Christmas scramble I printed out. Hope you can help. Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

    1. Yes, Catherine. Both the 2020 and 2021 calendars are ready. I’ve just been dragging my feet on adding links to this page yet. They’re up and live now, though, so you can download any of those calendars whenever you want.

  22. I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your free printable calendars. Each year you are the only source that creates them the way I like. A year-at-a-glance, with the date small enough that I can still write a tiny notation in the box. Thank you thank you thank you!

  23. I love the vintage graphics. would you mind sharing where you got them from? I would like to make my own printables. Thanks

    1. I’m happy to share, Anita. The majority of the graphics I use come from one or more of the following five sources:

      • The Graphics Fairy – She publishes lots of vintage clipart and photos on her main blog, but also has a membership site that allows me unlimited use of the collection, even in commercial projects.
      • Old Design Shop – She offers a much smaller but still excellent selection of vintage and retro clipart easily searchable by subject.
      • The Hungry Jpeg – This is my go-to source for unique fonts to use in my graphic art, but it also offers a wide array of clipart. Most of their products are for purchase, but they offer a new freebie every Wednesday.
      • Masterclips 101,000 Premium Images Collection – My husband bought me this huge CD library of royalty-free and public domain photos and clipart which he found at Office Max on clearance for $9.99 about 25 years ago.
      • My own mind — Some of the artwork I use is original and hand-drawn. This is especially true of many the free printable coloring pages I share on this website.
  24. Thank you so much for sharing these great printables. Are you going to do a 2018-2019 Academic Calendar?

      1. Thanks! I was just here looking for that too; it’s my favorite to use in my planner every year! Thanks so much for all your work!

  25. Thank you for all these wonderful resources! I was wondering if you had an academic year in advance for 2018-2019. Thanks again!

  26. Great Resource! Going to share this one my website!
    I have used several you make over years. I never knew till
    today that you have diabetes in your family, great sheets for that !
    Linda Marie

    1. Thanks so much, Linda Marie. I appreciate you sending folks my way and hope they’ll find something they can use here, too.

  27. Jennifer, thank you so much for your website. I have been using your medication administration record sheets for over 3 years now. The sheets have helped me so much and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate them. Thank you and God bless you and your beautiful family.

    Thank you,

    1. You’re so welcome, Debbie. It warms my heart to hear that my resources have proven helpful to you! Thanks for taking time to tell me.

  28. Sorry to be a pest – do you by chance have the academic calendar for next year? I love your calendars and we are trying to get a head start on planning for next year. I have your 2018-2019 monthly calendars, but couldn’t find the academic. Thank you in advance. (Or even just a “Look for it in this month” will be great too!)

  29. Memory Verse Copywork – Set 2 – ERROR 404, page not found???? It is the only one I could not download, & I would REALLY like to. Please let me know if it is still available, somewhere on your site.

    Just wanted to let you know I, myself, am enjoying the memory verse cards. Excellent info! TYVVVVVM !!!!

    1. Thanks for letting me know there was a problem with that download, Diane. I’ve updated all the links now, and added manuscript as well as cursive versions of the copywork, so they should all direct properly now. Blessings!

  30. Have you drawn up any scrapbooking calendar pages for 2018 yet? We have used your template for keeping homeschool records of lighter activities like field trips, playdates and travel.

  31. What a blessing to find this resource! Thank you so much for sharing your time, talents, and wisdom. I am thankful I stumbled upon this site! I’ve pinned and shared it. God bless you all!

    1. You’re welcome, Beverly. Thanks so much for helping spread the word about our site by pinning and sharing. That means more to us than you know, and we appreciate your taking time to do it!

  32. Hello! I was wondering if the scrapbook monthly calendar for 2018 will be posted? I’ve been using those for a few years as the house/ kids calendar for each month. It’s SOOO helpful!

      1. Sure, Terese. You’ll find the one I’ve been using for the past eight years here: 52-week Bible Reading Plan. If you read the selected portion every day, this plan will take you through all 66 books in a year’s time, but it isn’t dated. So you shouldn’t feel like you have to wait until January to start. Blessings!

  33. Thank you so much for all the detailed work you have put into creating these free printables! It is so much appreciated! 🙂 God Bless!

  34. Thank you so much for posting this comprehensive list! It worked beautifully, and I’ve downloaded a few. I appreciate the hard work you’ve put into this.

    1. Ha! Writing blog posts and creating free printables are pretty sedentary tasks, Melinda. Nimble fingers are an advantage, perhaps, but it doesn’t call for much leg work. I’m glad you like what we offer here, though. We always happy to gain new fans. 🙂

  35. I love the clean look of your academic year at a glance calendar. When will you have the 2017-2018 available? Thanks so much! We also love your room inspection printables. They have transformed our children’s rooms.

    1. Please forgive me for taking so long to respond to your question, Wendi. I know the printable you are talking about, and while I’ve used it myself in the past and may have published a link to it at some point, the “31 Verses to Pray for Your Husband” didn’t originate with me and I cannot find a copy of it anywhere. The closest I could find is this one (scroll down to the bottom of the page to print a calendar format of prayers for your husband.

      You may also be interested in the 30 Days of Praying for Your Husband challenge offered by Revive Our Hearts. It’s free. They also offer a 30 Day Respect challenge for wives which I highly recommend, as it was based on my book. 🙂

      The only praying-for-your-husband printable I’ve published (so far) is the “Praying for Your Husband Head to Toe” guide. I cannot lay hands on the 31 verses I used when my husband and I were first married and can’t find a copy on the Internet, either, so I may try to recreate it in the future. I kept thinking I’d get that done and send it to you, but life’s been busy, and I’ve finally decided to answer without it. Again, I’m so sorry for the long delay!

  36. I came to your site for a coloring page and found myself printing everything and looking everywhere. I HAVE to go now but I will be back. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    1. Oh, good. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get the newer printables I’ve posted into this listing. Glad you found it. Happy reading!

  37. Hi! Do you still have the reading logs? I can’t find them anywhere and I thought they used to be here. They’re the ones with just lines where you fill in the # of pages, Title, and Author. We’ve used several of your sheets and we’re glad and thankful you posted them on your blog!

  38. thanks you so much. these printables are so nice and are really going to help me with our homeschooling. your family is so inspiring to me and i hope that you continue to blog. thanks again Kim.

  39. Oh my gosh! You’re in Tyler Tx? My oldest daughter lives there. We moved to Virginia two years ago for work but will always be a Texas. I love your site! thank you for all the hard work you put into it for the rest of us homeschoolers.

    1. You’re so welcome, Vicki. Yes, we’ve been in Tyler for nearly 20 years, and I’ve been in Texas all my life. I love it here and hope I never have to leave!

  40. You are so generous and gracious to share! These are so helpful. Even with nearing the end of my home schooling years, each child is different and these are great to help me finish strong and stay focused on the goals! Bless you.

  41. You have an amazing heart! Thank you for sharing these with us! I pray God blesses you and your family!

    1. You are very welcome, Maria, and we appreciate your prayers! God has already blessed us so abundantly — this website is just one more way of sharing those blessings with others. So glad you’ve found us. 🙂

    1. You are so welcome, Jama! I well remember how overwhelmed I felt with four. Keep up the good work. It gets easier as they get older. 🙂

  42. two weeks ago i painstakingly made up responsibility and homeschool tracking charts for my 4 and 5 year old, more to help me see what we fall behind on than for any other reason… tonight i find almost exacty what i spent hours perfecting here – wish i’d checked here first!

    1. Sorry you didn’t find us sooner, Nichole. I guess next time you need a new chart, you’ll know to check here first. 🙂

  43. Thank you so much for all the printables you make available to us! I found you via Pinterest as I was looking for ideas on lesson planning and homeschool organizing. I’m a widowed mom of two and I’m about to make some drastic changes, so organization will be key to be able to balance it all. God bless you and others like you who freely share with others!

  44. Praise the Lord! I love your website Flanders Family! I always seem to find myself going back to your website for encouragement, especially on raising my children. You are a blessing to my family. Happy New Year, and God Bless you all.

  45. Thank you for continuing to make your scrapbook calendars available. I love how cute they are! I print them every year and use them for my planner.

  46. I’m very new to home schooling, and I came across your site via pintrest and I LOVE the resources! THANK YOU so much for sharing!!

  47. Ok, I’m not a Christian, so on first look at your sight I didn’t care much for it…

    As I looked though, I found many useful resources to help me raise my girlfriend’s granddaughter. Thank you for making this available to all. Thank you.

    1. That’s nice to hear, Daniel. I’m happy you found something helpful here and hope you will visit us again!

  48. I’m a mother of 4, a grandmother of 7, and great-grandmother of 3. I homeschooled my own for a total of 18 years. During this time, We had no internet. I used Usborne mimeograph books a lot. You put a piece of typing paper in and rub with a credit card to make your copy. They were purple and smelled, LOL. Everything else I wrote by hand or typed on an old typewriter. I pray blessings on your ministry. Homeschoolers today don’t know how good they have it!

    1. You are right about that, Denise! I remember those purple mimeographs, too, from my own grade school years. I sometimes used carbon paper for making duplicates when we were just starting out homeschooling. Those desktop copy machines have been such a huge time saver, haven’t they? Thanks for the stroll down memory lane this morning — and for the reminder not to take everday blessings for granted. 🙂

  49. Hi Jennifer thank you for all your hard work for these printables, they are so helpful! Is there anyway I could suggest making calender’s that start in September? Yes we are one of those that start after Labor Day 😉 Thank you for your consideration!

    1. Since this academic calendar still shows all 12 months, starting after Labor Day really shouldn’t matter. We do that some years, ourselves! Some years we school year-round, and this calendar allows for that, as well. Just consider the days before class starts teacher-in-service days and mark them accordingly. View the months after lessons end as vacation days and use them for blocking out summer travel plans or recording field trips you take during time off from school.

  50. This is the best site I have found so far for printables! I’ve looked everywhere for things like this and you have everything in one place. Thank you so much for putting this all in one place. God Bless you…

  51. Hi wonderful you!
    I am so encouraged to find such a wholesome site. Thank you! I wish I had seen your many of your ideas way early!

  52. Dear Flanders family,
    I stumbled upon your website looking for printable worksheets for my son to work on during the summer. He will be in first grade next year. I love your site & the values your family is promoting. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all of this with us.

    Take care!

  53. I absolutely LOVE your page and what you have done to offer this to others. God bless you tremendously and thank you for helping us GET ORGANIZED and DISCIPLINED!!
    I would love to have as a link on my website/blog, if you don’t mind.

    1. I’d love for you to send your readers our way, Jo Ann. All I ask is that you link only to post pages, not directly to PDF files. I appreciate your enthusiasm and hope my delay in answering hasn’t completely quenched it — your message somehow got buried in my pending comment box and only now resurfaced. So sorry about that! 🙁

      1. Hi Jennifer, Can you e-mail me the ANSWER SHEET to your “Name That Song” Christmas game. Thank you. Eileen McEnaney

    1. Hi, Lori.

      You may just need a PDF reader. You can download a free version of Adobe here which should do the trick. If not, let me know, and I’ll try to email them to you.

  54. Dear Flanders family-

    Thank you so much for this wonderful resource. I came across it via a Google search for a printable list of the bible books. I wish we had this precious resource when raising our own children. They are grown up now with families of their own; all have kept their faith in Christ with two that married unbelievers at the time, but who have both been redeemed. (Whew!)

    Thank you once again, and I will surely pass along the good news about The Good News found on your site.

    BTW: Please say hello to Ned for me. (wink-wink)

    1. Thanks for writing, Andy. I loved reading the testimony of God’s faithfulness to your family… and your PS made me smile. Although I’ve never actually watched The Simpsons, I’m familiar enough with Ned Flanders to suspect the proper greeting would be hidy-ho, wouldn’t it? 🙂

  55. I know its is only JANUARY 2015. but i have noticed that y’all do not have a 2016+ Year at Glance Calendar yet. and believe it or not they’re isn’t a year at glance calender like yours that I’ve found.

    I have used that little 12 month calendar for EVERYTHING. Work, Lesson Plans, vacation/ holiday/ Dr, Apt. plans as well as tracking weight loss throughout the year I’ve been on my diet. I love it! its SO useful!

    I sure do hope that y’all decide to update that layout!

    Thanks for your great printables!!!

  56. Wow Jennifer! Thank you for making this stuff available. I just found your site and am already a big fan. I love trying to be organized and your printables are inspiring. I just had my 3rd baby, and felt the same way about my time in the hospital. It was very pleasant to have a break and was even able to read a book! Anyways, thanks!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Deb, and congratulations on your 3rd baby. May God lavish His richest blessings on your family this coming year!

  57. I have used several of the charts because I am a completely unorganized man. The charts have helped immensely. Thank you sooo much.How about a medication chart reminding oneself to take their meds on time.

  58. Have you ever considered doing a Yearly Fact Sheet for each child say before their next birthday? Such a sheet that has their age and describes their interests, hobbies, favorite color, favorite activity, challenges they faced, things they accelerate at, goals they reached, etc. for that previous year. I am looking for such a sheet but want to make sure I capture all the right information to either put in a baby book or scrapbook as I document their lives. Have you ever seen such a sheet? Thoughts?

    1. That’s a great idea, Heather. I’m working on one now. Look for it to post over the weekend. And thanks for the inspiration!

  59. I have downloaded several charts but when i try to open them it says cannot open for some reason

    1. I’m guessing you may just need a PDF reader. You can download a free version of Adobe here which should do the trick. If not, let me know which printables you are interested in, and I will try to email them to you.

  60. Thank you for sharing all of your hard work with the rest of us. I have looked through your site and absolutely love having a Faith-based family myself. It’s wonderful to see how much you and your family love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. THANK YOU again for sharing all that you have. It is a wonderful resource!

  61. Wow great! I saved a few that I want to print them specially for my nephew who my mom takes care of him while my sister works…

  62. I only have 3 left at home but my oldest has begun her family and wants at least 5 so this will be helpful to her as well…I am not naturally an organized person so I am looking forward to what you so kindly have taken the time to prepare AND SHARE with us to use in my family. Thank you!

  63. This is awesome! Thank you so much for helping my family of five kiddos get organized, set goals and learn to be responsible. My husband and I are at our wits ends and this helps us see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes when you are “in the box” it is hard to see out of the box and your site and printable pages are exactly what we needed. God bless you and yours!

    1. Thanks, Cherie. The early, simpler ones were done in Microsoft Word. Most of my more recent (somewhat prettier) printables were created using Pages for Mac.

    1. A few of the “pretty” ones are, Nancy, but by no means all. A lot of the printables offered on our site are very plain but practical. They wouldn’t necessarily make for a popular pin, but they’re great for practicing addition facts, tracking reading progress, making lesson plans, scheduling your calendar, etc. I do have a bulletin board on Pinterest devoted to free printables, but only a few of those pins are from my own site. All my original printables eventually make it onto my free printables page, so as to make them easier to find… but I will admit it sometimes takes me several months to update it with the newest printables I’ve published.

  64. Thanks for the free printables! My family is trying to get better organized this year. I was excited to find spreadsheet with ideas and samples that made it not seem as stressful for me.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Terri. I’ll suggest using Adobe to folks who are having problems with opening the PDFs.

  65. These are some of the BEST printables I’ve found. A friend shared the appropriate chores list on Facebook and that’s how I found you. LOVE your site. Subscribing and following you on Twitter!

  66. I can’t get the free printables to come up either. =( It opens a new window but it’s completely blacked out.

    1. I’m so sorry, Kristina. I’m not sure why that is happening. Does that happen on all of them, or just the one you are trying to print? If it affects every printable, I think the problem must be on your end. If its only one or two, I may need to tweak something on this end. If you will send me the name of the file(s) you’re wanting to print, I’ll see if I can fix it right away or email you the PDFs you want.

    1. Can you open the PDFs you want to print? If so, once the file is opened, just hit “print” to print immediately or “save” if you want to print later. I’ve never heard of anybody being unable to do it that way before.

  67. I can’t say thank you enough for all the time and effort that you have put into this. You have made it incredibly easy to get pretty much anything your looking for all in one spot. God Bless you and yours!!!

  68. Hi. Would you share what type of software you use to create the charts. I would like to use some, but edit specific chores a bit for my individual children.

    1. The older B&W text charts were all done on a PC using Microsoft Word. Most of my newer color charts and graphics were done on a Mac using a program called Pages.

  69. I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am having run upon your site!!!! I shared it on facebook and will return often! Love, Love, Love everything! God bless and keep you always!

    1. I just use my academic calendar as our attendance chart. I use different colors to highlight the planned school days/vacation days at the beginning of the year, then check off the days we school as the year progresses. If you’re looking for a separate sheet for each student, you might try this one by Beverly Hernandez.

      1. Thank you so much. The one from Beverly Hernandez is perfect. Thank you. I am also looking for a good report card/progress report form. Again unable to locate. Thanks If anyone knows of a good printable site.

  70. Wow!! I’m really impressed!! I wish I were so organized!!! I’m on my way, though!!
    Thank you!!

  71. Such a wealth of useful tools here! 🙂 Thank you, thank you, thank you! These resources are so helpful in getting my home and schedule organized.

  72. Thank you so much for your website. I use your menu planner and other printables as needed. I always get some sort of needed encouragement when I’m here looking around!
