Inchworm, inchworm, Measuring the marigold. You and your arithmetic... You'll probably go far! So here is the beginning of my Kindergarten Measurement Unit.

My favorite mustache day activity was created by Mrs. Wheeler! We measured mustaches with paper clips and counting blocks. She has this Mustachy Measurement activity as a freebie in her TpT Store.
