Fuel Up to Play 60 Playground Stencils


(image) Fuel Up to Play 60 Stencils inspire kids to learn and move while creating games around the stencils.  Schools and organizations can beautify their spaces while encouraging physical activity, healthy eating and learning.  All stencils are made in the USA and come with easy to follow instructions for volunteers or hired crews. A portion of FUTP60 stencil sales go back to the GenYouth Foundation to fund physical activity and nutrition grants to schools.

Dairy MAX, a local non-profit dairy council, expanded the Austin ISD and UT School of Public Health pilot, Active Play. The expansion utilized playground stencils to increase daily physical activity minutes and educate about nutrition through active learning. Students created over 250 games, which is the foundation of the project.  The Fuel up To Play District Wide Celebration featured speeches by TX Representative Mark Strama, USDA Undersecretary Kevin Concannon, Austin, TX Mayor Lee Leffingwell and two former NFL players, Denver Broncos’ Dan Neil and Minnesota Vikings’ Mike Rosenthal!

Research found that elementary school children spend more of their recess and activity time in active play when schoolyards are enhanced with playground markings. The Fuel Up to Play 60 Playground stencils started with Austin Independent School District in Austin, TX. PE In 2011, Supervisor Michele Rusnak worked with the University of Texas School of Public Health on a pilot called the Active Play Project. This school-based health promotion utilized playground stencils to encourage physical activity. The project also fulfills the CDC's National Coordinated School Health requirements: physical education, nutrition education and parent and community involvement. The playground stencils engage students both physically and academically as nutrition messages such as MyPlate, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein and low fat dairy will be integrated.

The Match Game


The Match Game

 Stencil Ease has been in business for more than three decades. During that time it snagged a lion’s share of its targeted market, expanded product offerings and made a name for itself as a reliable, quality company.
But CEO Brian Greenho wanted more.
“We had an opportunity to expand our business and hire more people if we could participate in a matching-grant program,” explains Greenho.
So the company submitted an application to the state Department of Economic & Community Development’s Small Business Express Matching Grant Program. It was successful and as a consequence of that funding, Stencil Ease now has a larger workforce and “the latest and greatest” equipment — a state-of-the-art laser cutting machine — it needed to get to the next level.

May 03, 2012 -

“Build Strong Bones” “My Plate Food” and “Centipedes” would seem like classroom topics for most kids. Not if you are one of the many that attend the Austin Independent School District (AISD). These kids will soon get some serious play-time on their freshly stenciled playgrounds also known as the Active Play Project.

Dairy MAX and Fuel Up to Play 60 awarded AISD a district-wide grant to implement physical activity playground stencils in all 80 elementary schools. Fuel Up to Play 60 is a partnership between the NFL and the Dairy Council. The in-school nutrition and physical activity program supports innovative ideas like AISD’s Active Play Project. The Active Play Project began as a pilot in AISD and research showed it increased students’ physical activity minutes per day. AISD contracted Stencil Ease to produce the custom set of playground stencils to increase physical activity during the school day while educating students in a fun way about nutrition.
Stenciling skeletons, food images and creatures onto blacktop playground games such as hopscotch, jump rope and twister are just a few of the enhancements these playgrounds will offer. The program emphasizes locomotor skills, active play, awareness of the body and the importance of EXERCISE!

AISD chose as the supplier for each playground stencil kit. The design staff at worked closely with all groups to advise, engineer and manufacture a complete set of custom playground stencils for this initiative. The stencils will be painted on the playgrounds by PTO volunteers, teachers, community volunteers, students and AISD staff. has been manufacturing stencils for over 30 years and currently produces over 30,000 items. All of the stencils can be customized and cut on a variety of plastic materials for any painting application.

New Hopscotch Stencil Now Available


Hopscotch Stencil Curved
60 inches wide x 150 inches high

Cut on 72 inch wide x 158 in high 10 or 14 mil, or 60 mil mylar (durable, reusable plastic) sheet

Our new hopscotch stencil is a fun item to add to any school, daycare, preschool or home environment. This hopscotch stencil ships as one single piece (except for 60 mil which comes in 2 pieces). Simply unroll the stencil, place in position and mark hopscotch pattern with spray marking paint (permanent and temporary marking sprays available at local hardware stores) or use a marking ink with a foam or neoprene roller. The generous 72" wide plastic sheet lets stencil stay securely in place and allows for over spray while painting (you may want to secure the edges with tape or weights if it is even slightly windy.)
Some paints and stains can be used, but we suggest you talk to your local paint or hardware store for the best spray paint, ink or liquid paint for the surface you wish to use the hopscotch stencil on. Item ships rolled in a durable shipping tube via UPS or FedEx.

The Rules for Hopscotch

1.The first player tosses his token into the first space.

2.Hopping on one leg, the player skips onto each numbered space, first in ascending order. He must hop over the space where his token is.

3.The player is allowed to step on HOME (the space indicated by footprints) with both feet. This is also the space for the player to
take a short rest. He turns around and readies himself to continue.

4.The player must hop back in descending order to the starting position. On the way back, he must stop on the space just before the one where his token is, bend and pick up his token while still
balancing on one leg.

5.After picking up the token, the player hops onto the space where
the token was and continues hopping on the rest of the spaces.

6.The next player then takes a turn.

7.When a player has successfully completed tossing this token into
all spaces, he is then allowed to try and "land" a home. What this
means is that he repeats steps 1 to 5 but after he completes
hopping, he stands in front of space #1, with his back to the
hopscotch pattern and tosses his token over his shoulder. If his token lands within any space (except HOME), he can claim that space
as his "home". The owner of the space is allowed to step on that
space with both feet. All others are NOT ALLOWED to hop on that space.

The player loses his turn if he:

- loses balance while picking up his token and his other foot or hand touches the ground.

- his token touches the hopscotch pattern lines.

- he falls.

- he touches the hopscotch pattern lines with his foot while hopping.

He will then have to resume by tossing his token in the space that
he failed to complete AFTER the other players have had their turns.

Basketball Court Stencil


(image) Our Basketball Court Stencil is a NCAA college/highschool regulation court and the overall dimensions to the outside free-throw lines are 12 ft wide x 25 ft and 2 in (top of radius). All lines are 2 in. thick. The basic kit comes with 32 stencil pieces that lay out to make your basketball court (3 point line not included in the BASIC kit).

See Demonstration

The Stencil Ease basketball court is made from our thickest 60 mil, (1/16 in. thick), heavy-duty reusable plastic industrial
material. This is NOT made out of cardboard. This material
is designed to lay flat, not get blown around from wind gusts and is specifically used for marking
concrete, pavement or any surface. With these stencils and our over-spraybox (comes with kit), your basketball court will paint out with
crisp, clean lines every time. This court will last for years and can be used hundreds of time with little to no maintenance.

Don’t want the lines to have gaps or breaks? After you paint the court, simply slide the stencil into a different position over the lines you’ve already applied and spray.
