Kids love to measure their height with a growth ruler and if you make one for them yourself then how great it would be. For that here is a tutorial for you. To start with first you have to paint the numbers over a six feet tall piece of wood. Then using a brush apply a coating of clear sealer over the wooden piece. With a black paint marker graduate the wooden board. At one side you can also hang picture frames of your kids when they were at the respective height of the growth ruler. Your kids are going to love it. For more details visit adventures in decorating and design.
