Big Ruler Height Chart

Like most moms, I feel like my kids are growing up too fast.  The days are long but the years are short.  I wanted a keepsake that would show their growth.  I pictured them showing it to their kids when they visit Grammy & Grandpa’s house someday.  This Big Ruler Height chart came out so good and was super easy!  It also requires very few supplies:

First step in making the Big Ruler Height Chart:

I lightly sanded the wood and stained it.  I drew the measurements on with pencil and traced the numbers on using the stencils.  (This would also be a great task for a Cricut!) I traced over the lines and colored in the numbers with a black Sharpie.  I used picture hooks on the back for easy hanging.

**Important tip**

If you plan to hang it on a wall, don’t start the ruler at zero…As you can see mine started at 6 inches so when I hung it on the wall it was 6 inches off the ground.

This has become a conversation piece in our family room.  We even have all our cousins heights documented.  It’s a thing the kids can’t wait to do when their cousins visit.  Enjoy!
