A simple easy way of watching your kids growth. You do it ever year around the same time & see how much your kids grow in a year.


  • 4+ (How ever many requires Stretched Canvas 20cm x 20cm
  • 3+ Different non toxic paints
  • 1 Paint brush
  • 1 Marker pen
  • 1 Measuring tape
  • Elizabeth Phillips


  1. Layout all materials ready to go.
    Clean child’s foot or hand ready for painting
    Chose desired colour & paint foot or hand
  2. Place painted foot or hand gently on canvas for a few seconds & carefully remove. (I did my babies footprints while she was sitting in her high chair)
    Let paint dry
  3. Using measuring tape, measure child’s height.
    Once print is dry on canvas, with marker pen write child’s name, current age & recorded height.


I started this last year with my kids & they love it too seeing how much hey have grown since last year. It’ll be a project to be continued each year. It’s perfect for a rental property when you are unable to mark walls but still want to keep a visible record of kids growth
