PLAYGROUND STENCILS

PLAYGROUND STENCILS was created by lstan
We have an outdated playground over 50 years old, and want to fundraise. Any ideas would be appreciated. We would like to paint a map of the US, Computer Keyboard, four square, hop scotch, etc.. The stencils are expensive and I have tried calling all the local schools in my area to see if anyone has anything we can borrow. Is there anyone in the CT, MA, RI, VT, NH, ME area that has these stencils. I don't mind driving it beats paying over $800 to buy all the stencils.

We bought the stencils from Peaceful Playgrounds.
We are in RI, call me if you still need them

I am actually in the process of doing this exact same thing up here in Massachusetts.

Turns out that the local verizon has these. Not sure if your area would as well, but it can't hurt giving a call. Maybe it's a standard practice of Verizon. If you happen to be in this area let me know and maybe I can set you up with my contact.

Jim,

I am also in MA and would love to get your contact. We had a lead on getting the Map of the US painted from a group called the Pioneers (also related to phone company), but somehow that has gone missing!

Our local fire department painted our stencils for us. We live in VA., but you should check with community service workers and see if anyone has access to them.

A couple of years ago when my kids were playing soccer at an elementary school in Springfield, MA, I noticed the school had the USA map on the playground, I thought it was really cool. I have no idea how old it is, or if there was a stencil, but you could try the City of Springfield MA school dept- maybe they would know? I am sorry I have NO idea where in Springfield the school was or what the name was- we were visiting from out of town.
