This DIY Giant Wooden Ruler Growth Chart is useful for marking your child’s height as they grow. Handmade and hand painted with love, it’s perfect as a First Day of School Photo Prop.
While kids are surely wanting to forget that it’s time to go Back To School, parents are already planning special ways to commemorate that big first day!
The First day of school pictures have become so much more than a just quick snapshot of the kids with their backpacks waiting for the school bus. They’re now creative mementos that celebrate special milestones in a child’s life. Whether you’re creating a photo backdrop or using special props or signs, the first day of school pictures are something that you (and even your children) will treasure for years to come.
Today we have a special guest blogger Sejal from My Butter Fingers sharing her easy First Day of School Photo prop – a DIY Giant Ruler Growth Chart with us.
