Playground Stencil Success Stories

Teachers and 4-H members at W. W. Stewart Elementary School recently painted a United States map on the back patio of the school playground. A stencil was obtained through a grant by Physical Education Teacher, Venessa Livingston. After using the stencil kit to produce a dot-to-dot image of the map, teachers and students volunteered time to make an outline, paint each state and the Great Lakes, and label each state with the two-letter abbreviations. Upon arrival to school the next morning, students were mesmerized by the site and have continuously played games on the map. There is little playground equipment at the school, and this map gives students an option that is both educational and fun. Teachers also use this map to reinforce lessons on the states and regions of the United States. By having resources such as this map available to them, teachers are able to enhance the education of all students at the school.

I want to thank you for helping me with the stencil. I’ll tell you what if I didn’t have a stencil I would still be working on it now. The stencil was a lot of help and the Eagle Scout project was a great success. Your company was very helpful in giving me the things I needed and helping me with everything. The stencil was easy to use and created a great teaching tool for the students. I’ve already told several people about this website and told them to come to you for other playground projects. Thank you very much – Matt Molle

Two Tracy Girl Scouts are Golden

The stated mission of the Girl Scouts is to build confidence, courage and character while making the world a better place. On May 22, the organization will recognize two Tracy girls who delivered on this promise. Elizabeth Holtz and Heather Stegner will receive the Girl Scout Gold Award, the Scouts highest honor. In order to reach this goal, both 17-year-old high school seniors have to fulfill a years-long list of requirements, then carry out a project entailing at least 65 hours of work that benefits the wider community. Holtz chose to decorate the South/West Park Elementary School playground using stencils and other materials from the Peaceful Playgrounds project. She acquired stencils from the organization, then measured and painted a colorful series of lessons and games around the playground. “They help the children get along better and resolve conflicts,” explained Holtz, who will attend UCLA this fall… more

Map of the United States earns Award for Girl Scouts

Troop leader Denise Martin said “After discussing several ideas we chose painting the map of the United States at the local elementary school, Boone Trail.” The PTA was very enthusiastic and was a great resource in implementing our project. The stencil for the map was purchased by Boone Trail’s PTA from Peaceful Playgrounds. The process involved laying down large stencils with dots outlining the state. “Then we connected the dots. It was pretty amazing to see that it actually worked,” Martin said. The map of the United States is painted to scale. One foot equals 100 miles. Martin said the troop chose to paint Alaska to scale. When getting an up close look, Martin said that many people are amazed at how big Alaska really is in relation to the rest of the country. On the flip side they are surprised at how small Hawaii is. The paint is a durable outdoor paint that is used to paint parking lots, so it will be there for a while.

Elementary Students Sing the States

Teachers, students, and PTO members at Grand Avenue Elementary recently finished a Fifty Nifty United States project. They produced a painted outdoor map of the United States. The concrete was provided for this large outdoor map of the United States by the Grand Avenue PTO. Peaceful Playgrounds stencils and kit were made possible by the Chickasha School Foundation. Teachers volunteered their time and talent to paint all the states and bordering oceans. This area of the playground was not being used because old playground equipment had to be removed and the space was trapping water. Now students are able to sing regional songs and walk through each region while working on their states and capitals. This map will be used school wide to explore geography that is related to every grades Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) which is Oklahoma’s core curriculum. It is an excellent resource for students to learn outside of the classroom.
