When I was growing up every year we mark our heights on the back of the basement door. It was great to see how our heights we differ from year-to-year and sibling to sibling. I am looking forward to doing this with my daughter but the only problem is since we are a military family I needed a solution that we can take from house to house. My favorite thing to say to my daughter is I love you to the moon and back after the storybook. So I wanted to incorporate this into her growth chart. You can also make this with any design of your choice if you have a different book that your kids love.

Directions for DIY Wooden Growth Chart
Prime you’re board and then painted light blue.
Once the paint is dry using yellow paint a moon in the top left-hand corner and a few stars.
Now you need to write I love you to the moon and back in white paint. Using your tape measure starting at the bottom make a mark every inch make a longer mark every foot.
Then paint a line at each mark.
Start labeling each foot mark starting with 2 feet going higher.
Fill in the rest of the stars grouping more at the top and then one star in a line swirling down to the bottom. Once your board is dry attach the hanger to the back of the board and hang on the wall making sure you measure a foot from the bottom.
