A lot of teachers I know use worksheets for different purposes and when used effectively, it can be a good filler or fulfill the purpose of what you want to teach. A good handout always supplements the lesson. You need to pre-teach material and information before it is to be processed via a handout. When these are given too much emphasis however, students can become demotivated by the learning process, which in turn, lowers their self-esteem. You obviously want to avoid this.
What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this should not be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favourite cd and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem. Depending on your child has age and concentration span there are plenty of fun ways to get them working on printable worksheets.
Also your kids can send happy birthday cards to friends. They come in five options to choose from the making friends feel individually loved and appreciated. Just think of sending a card with pretty animals, cones and cake, bunny duck drawings that not only look great but also are a source of learning as they can be used as instructional materials in school. Kids will have fun while at the same time learning to read and write.
