Growth Chart Mini Polaroids Freebie

By Thursday, August 30, 2012 ,

My last post was detailing the steps to make a DIY Growth chart.

For marking the heights I decided to use Mini Polaroid photos and push pins:

Step 1:
Designed a Polaroid printable in Photoshop that I could print out on a 4x6 photo at my local CVS or Walmart. You can download the template I used here: Polaroid PSD

File is PSD format you'll need 
to edit it.

Step 2:
Printed the 4x6, cut out each child's mini Polaroid and used cute push pins to mark the spot on the board.

I plan to continue this at the beginning of each school year with an updated photo. The Polaroid method seemed best because I knew it was something simple I could have printed each year and also if a photo gets old or damaged it is easy to replace. I also liked being able to leave the photos up to watch how the kids grow and change every year.

*Push pins were simple silver thumb tacks which I covered in glue and dipped in flower shaped glitter.
