Life Size Ruler

It's back to school time again and we are still in the middle of planning our back to school party. This is just our next giant school supply for the party.

This was really easy to make. I stopped by Lowe's and picked up a 1" x 12" x 6' board.
The dash marks are made with black electrical tape. I started by placing the marks at the foot marks then every 6 inches then every 3. I was trying to make it look like 6 inch ruler, only bigger. :)

The 'back to school' was cut our using my Cricut and Mod Podged onto the board. For the numbers I cut out the numbers with the Cricut and then taped then on the board and painted black inside the outline of the numbers.

I can't believe my little Kindergardener is almost 4 feet tall!
