Growth Chart
8.  Portable Growth Chart {How-To}I love marking the growth of the kiddos (man it happens fast!), but it’s always a sad day when you move and those little ticks you made in the door frame can’t come with you.  Instead, make this cute chart out of jute fabric and you can store it, display it, and/or take it with you when you go.  It would also be a fun memento to give the kids when they are grown.  Maybe they will want to add their children someday too!
