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!
