Children’s Height Charts

Share on Twitter

Children grow. OK, it may be obvious but they do, and sometimes a lot quicker than you think. Obviously you see your children everyday and sometimes it’s easy to not to notice that they are growing up fast.  Children love to keep track of their growth and will compare their height against fixed objects and their siblings on a regular basis.

Traditionally families would have a dedicated door frame or wall where they would track their child’s current height with a pencil or crayon mark. While this is always great fun it can get a little disorderly over times and cause a problem or two when it’s time to decorate.  Ready-made height charts are a great idea and come in a variety of fun and colourful designs that will coordinate with your children’s room theme or colour scheme. Inexpensive and simple to fix on a wall they also have the advantage of being removable for decorating purposes and you can take them with you if you move.
