We recently came across this great pin on Pinterest showing a kiddo in an over-sized shirt that has his high school graduation year on the front and a place where he can put his handprint on the back each year as well. We totally love this idea because it allows the parents to not only document the child’s growth each year based on how he or she starts to fill out the shirt, but also have his/her growing handprints on the back.
