Can someone tell me where I can find colourful backgrounds for my worksheets?

In WORD just go to page layout - page colour - from there you can choose a colour, texture pattern, picture or watermark.  In the same place you can choose from a variety of page borders.  My WORD is in French so I īm not sure of the words given in an English programme.  You can even add one of your own photos as background.  Hope this is what you were looking for.

Why don īt you try the template section at the top of this page?
There are some excellent layouts available for free there.
It īs one of the red headings under the ESL Printables big heading.
Good luck.

If you want something different with a personal touch you can find some here:


Download and add in your ws from the "page layout" tools, as a background. It īll increase the ws size though.

Have a nice day / evening.
