This is a great idea for those of you with young kids. I know it was always a special tradition when my dad would line us up on our own growth chart on our birth days to measure our progress. Of course it was always a source of competition among my brothers but still a fun tradition and something my parents took with us each time we moved.
My dad actually ripped out the wood paneling he had been marking on before we moved once and started dragging that piece of wall around with us each time we moved.
I think a little DIY project like this is a much better option.
