DIY Growth Chart

Hehe we were being silly during family time the other night J We always think its funny to see Mia’s big Korean head squished inside her hoodies. And perhaps she’s outgrown this outfit considering it’s bunching up at the knees haha.  But it’s sad how quickly she outgrows cute outfits and I hold out as long as possible before putting them away. L

Aaaanyway, while snapping away at Mia being silly, I caught her growth chart in the background, so here’s a DIY growth chart tutorial for $0!
  1. Cut out whatever shapes you want out of cardstock. I save cards (like the gift tags made here) and even tissue boxes haha. What!? They have cute designs! At first I freehanded circles. But then I bought a circle punch for her birthday party and now I use that.
  2. Write down date, height and weight. I used each doctor’s checkup.
  3. Pick out a spot on the wall. Measure your child’s height (we use 2 rulers if we’re too lazy to get the real tape measure), mark lightly with a pencil.
  4. Use double sided tape to adhere. Done!

Mia picks at them now and then but it’s not too often. And I always just tape them back up, which is why the pencil marking is helpful. You likey? Did you notice that you’re slowly seeing all the elements in her room?
