This was a fun Saturday/Sunday project. Saw these somewhere and figured I could make one for each of the youngest grandkids (3). Got the self stick numbers and lines off the internet a couple of years back, and they worked really well. The growth chart pictured here is hickory, 6 feet long by 5 1/2 inches wide by about 5/8’s thick. All sharp edges are relieved and the wood left unfinished. Left it unfinished so they can write on the board the dates when they take the measurements.

That’s the youngest trying it out for size. I make her to be a bit over two and a half feet. (Yes, those are dinosaur jammies!)

Easy project to make lasting memories.

Good idea with the peel and stick numbers. I made one of those for my kids. I’ve been marking on the board and taking a photo every 3-4 months. They’re growing fast!!
