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.
My time with toddlers is governed by the following facts: Hands-on experiences are the best and why I prefer play to "worksheets". Toddlers have emotions similar to adult emotions but their thought processes are quite different. Meet them on their level. Toddlers emotions are close to the surface. I compare them to a light switch--one minute happy and the next sad. They can go from calm to agitated in seconds. Patience is the most important word I use to describe how to deal with toddlers. Stay calm and help them to learn of their own abilities to deal with their feelings.
Children can work with simple numbers worksheets from quite an early age and you will have greater success in getting them to work on the worksheets if you combine that learning work with something practical, or at least something they enjoy doing. For example, if you are using a simple addition and subtraction worksheet with your child, draw or type up another sheet of with squares and numbers printed onto them. Instead of writing the answers to the questions on the worksheet you can get your child to cut and paste the required numbers for the answers from from the second worksheet onto the first.
