Eat Your Veggies: Growth Charts

DIY Growth Chart Stencil

Growth charts are an easy addi­tion to a child’s room. Kids love to see if they gained an inch or two, and for mom, a growth chart is a great ally to get the kids to eat their veggies!

Here are some of our favorites…

Wooden Ruler Growth Chart

This giant wooden ruler is a great option, espe­cially in a room with a vin­tage or min­i­mal­ist theme. Wood is a great way to add instant warmth to a child’s room.

There are tons of great wall decals on the mar­ket, some with impe­r­ial, oth­ers with both met­ric and impe­r­ial sys­tems of measurement.

French Linen Growth Chart by Serendipity

I love this growth chart made with linen fab­ric by French artist Fanny Cham­bas, sold on the lovely Serendip­ity Paris online store. So French chic!

You can also make your own DIY growth chart like this one. I love the sim­ple and clever design. All you need is a piece of wood, some white paint, and painter’s tape.

DIY Growth Chart Stencil

Finally, one of my favorite: spot­ted in Finnish inte­rior designer Susanna Vento’s own home, this growth chart pat­tern was sten­ciled directly on a dresser. What a cute idea!

As you can see, there are tons of great options to choose from. In any case, you’ll be using your growth chart for a long time. I have an 11-year-old daugh­ter who keeps check­ing to see if she gained an inch every time she passes by a growth chart – and the veg­gies trick works every time!
