Cute Classroom Valentine’s Day Measuring Chart


How many kisses tall are you? Find out with this cute Valentine’s Day measuring chart. I saw a similar version of this cute Valentine’s Day classroom wall decoration on Pinterest, and I knew I wanted to make one for my class.

The idea is to make the paper on the wall look like a ruler, and then the kisses are used instead of numbers to measure how tall you are. I thought it would be a great addition to our classroom.

I was right; the kids loved measuring themselves against the Hershey kisses and counting how many kisses tall they were. It doesn’t take up too much room. The one I made was two pieces of construction paper wide. The picture doesn’t do it justice; it’s adorable. It would make an excellent decoration for a daycare, preschool, or young elementary school students.

I put a chart on the wall next to it with all the children’s names. I let the children write how many kisses tall they were next to their names. After everyone was measured, we talked about the chart as a group.


 Construction paper (Valentine’s Day colors red, purple, and pink), To add designs to the letters, I cut them out using scrapbook paper. If you have a Cricut available you can use it to make your letters or just use regular construction paper. You will also need tape, scissors, glue, aluminum foil, or letter tracers.

Step 1:

Tape construction paper to the wall to make the “ruler.” Our ruler was two columns of construction paper wide and 6 ft tall. I used ten sheets of 11×14 construction paper. I used purple paper, but you can use any color.

Step 2:

Use letter tracers to make the phrase How Many Kisses Tall Are You? If you’re good at making bubble letters, you can make them freehand. I am not, so I used tracers. You could also use a Cricut if you have one available. To make it more colorful, I used Valentine’s Day scrapbook sheets. After the letters are cut out, tape them to the top of your “ruler.”

Step 3:

Now it’s time to make the kisses. You can print out a tracer online by googling Hershey Kiss clip art, make one free hand after you cut them out, and glue aluminum foil to one side. You will need to make 6-8 kisses, depending on the size. Mine were the size of a 9×12 construction paper,r and I made 6.

Step 4: 

Next, you will tape the kisses to your “ruler.” Try to leave an equal amount of space between each kiss.

Step 5: 

I cut hearts in different sizes for the finishing touches and taped them to the “ruler.”

Classroom Activity Idea

Add a sheet of paper next to your “ruler” and have the kids write down how many kisses tall they were next to their names. When everyone has been counted, Make a chart of how tall the kids were.

I hope you enjoy this Valentine’s Day classroom decoration as much as my kids did!
