Home-Made Growth Chart

28 July 2010

muslin-height-chart3 A little while ago I came across a growth chart that told you what you were 'as big as' at any given height on the chart.

As my household is one, perhaps, uncommonly obsessed with measuring vertical progress I like the idea of making of your own height chart even more!

We've always just written on the door frame in pencil, which is ok until it's time to redecorate or it's time to move! I have pieces of paper with everyone's height at certain dates written on them and stashed away somewhere safe.

Imuslin-height-chart2 came across this EXCELLENT home-made growth chart tutorial today and I LOVE how it looks!

In fact I'm utterly in love with the whole concept - you could make them for your own children which can be kept as keepsakes when they've stopped growing - their own children, should they have any, will love looking at how tall their mother or father was at their age.

They can be made as new baby gifts for friends or family, and the designs are endless.

If you're at a loose end this summer holidays and you have a child starting school in September, then you could make one WITH your child and measure their height progress during their school career.

If you love this idea as much as I do and decide to make one, please send us photographs of your finished creations - we'd love to see them!

What do you think?
