How to use the reach chart

  • Children find it fun to see how high they can reach
  • Parents are surprised to see how high even the smallest child can reach
  • It is fun to run a competition to see who can reach the highest and mark the chart with a sticker with the name and age of the child
  • The reach chart can be used to see which household surfaces a child  can reach as they get older
