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!

DIY Growth Chart

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!

    Love these! The wooden ruler caught my eye in my feed but then I totally fell in love with the giraffe when I clicked through! :-) The dresser sten­cil is great too although her web­site is impos­si­ble to nav­i­gate from my phone :-P

    Hi! I am reg­u­lar reader of Hand­made Char­lotte and don’t typ­i­cally leave com­ments like this, but I work for a bou­tique toy com­pany and I’ve always been a fan of our clas­sic growth charts that are also easy to move when redec­o­rat­ing! I love the hand­made one you posted! So cute.

    I love all these grow charts. I like the DIY one with the wood. Of course, the giant wooden ruler is just awesome!

    Hello Emily, I love Eeboo! How fun to see that you too fol­low Hand­made Char­lotte. I just sub­mit­ted my illus­tra­tion port­fo­lio to you, won­der­ing if I could help you in anyway.

  • Melissa Kojima

    Yes, these are great. The giant wooden ruler is the best. I also like the DIY chart with a plank of wood. It is sim­ple and perfect!
