Here’s a unique growth chart! The author used a few of the little round metal pieces to create little personalized tags. She simply punched the names, ages and the year into the circles and gave them a couple coats of spray paint. You could use whatever colors you want – here they are gold, salmon and bronze. My favorite thing about this chart is the tactile quality. I love when you can feel the letters on a gravestone or feel the carvings in the doorframe on classic height charts. The only problem is that those door frames cannot easily come with you to the next house.
