Measure Me Strip

A Measure Me Strip takes only a short time to make, but it gives your kids years and years of measuring fun.

What You'll Need:

  • 1x4-inch pine board, about 6 feet long
  • Permanent markers
  • Yardstick
  • Camera
  • Color film
  • Blunt scissors
  • Craft glue

How to Make a Measure Me Strip:

Step 1: Draw a scale of inch and foot marks on one side of the pine board, using the yardstick as a guide.

Step 2: Stand the board up in a corner of your child's room. Each time you measure your child, write the date at the measurement mark.

Add baby measurements on the board, too. You can get the measurements from your pediatrician.

Step 3: Have a family member take a picture of your child each time you measure. Once the film is developed, cut the picture out and glue the photo to the board next to your measurement mark.
