Playground Stencils : One Minute Playground Tip




This Playground Video will talk about how you can use playground stencils to add games to your playground  and show how Cohasset Elementary did just that.

This video is going to show you how Cohasset Elementary school transformed their playground with Peaceful Playgrounds Stencils and Markings.

Before Peaceful Playgrounds, the games were beginning to fade and there were only  a few activities for children to play at recess.

This is a picture of the blacktop space before the playground stencils were applied and the painting began.  Note that they did sweep and wash down the asphalt to insure that the paint last longer.

This shows the principal and parent volunteers laying out a playground stencil for marking the playground.

This shows a teacher and parent that are using playground stencils to chalk in the running track shapes getting it ready for painting. Note the running/jogging track is painted on the playground.

This shows the transformed playground with new markings including Galloping tracks (in progress), skipping tracks, crossover walking etc that must be completed.

This shows the transformed playground with new markings including 2 multi-use circles, and (3) four square courts and a running /walking track run through and around the playground.

Thank you for attending this one minute playground tip on Cohasset Elementary playground design- Before and After Peaceful Playgrounds.       We hope you join us again and check out our You Tube Channel for other playground tips.
