Pics mark the spot

10 December 2015

We all know and love the tradition of marking our kids’ heights in a doorframe. But as always, we want to make a good idea even better. And frankly, we think we nailed this one. Start by marking the wall with measurements. Next to it, add corkboards. Record each new height and the date on decorative tape (each child can have their own colour), and add an of-the-moment photo.

Measurements are written by hand on the wall. Next to it a corkboard holds pictures of the children at each marked height.
