Every once and a while, we here at Fit and Fun Playscapes like to put together a list of our most popular indoor and outdoor recess games. This is to show what stencils and games are peaking our customers’ interests, especially as the season of grant deadlines approaches.
Here’s a list of our five most popular stencils in recent months.
Our custom Yoga Poses playground stencil is the perfect stencil for blowing off all that school day steam. From our website: “Yoga is a great way for kids to become more focused and fit. Practicing yoga postures helps to build strength, flexibility, and concentration. The physical practice of yoga, called “Hatha”, is non-denominational and can be enjoyed by anyone. The emphasis on breathing makes yoga unique, helping to reduce distractions and strengthen focus.” Our custom stencil brings together several well-known poses, such as the “Dancer,” “Cobra,” and “Tree,” which is perfect for group play and easy for beginners. Yoga helps children practice mindfulness and discipline, important skills in school and life beyond.
Fitness Agility Ladder
The Fitness Agility Ladder is an excellent custom stencil for young athletes looking to improve their quickness and mobility! Kids must match the foot patterns on the stencil by jumping in and out of the squares as quickly as possible, raising their heart rates and improving endurance. This is a great purchase for elementary, middle or high schools, in addition to youth sports teams. Our Fitness Agility Ladder has a Roll-Out Recess counterpart, the Roll-Out Fitness Agility Ladder, allowing this high-energy activity to be brought indoors for recess when the weather turns foul.
For the maze-lover in all of us! The Tessellation Maze custom stencil provides analytical skills training by requiring kids to critically think in order to solve the maze. Perfect for kindergarten or young elementary school students. Players can navigate through the maze traditionally, or rotate and repeat the stencils to enlarge the maze so additional players can join in! For an added twist, players can push balls or toy cars through the maze and race one another to the end. Make sure to add our Tessellation Maze Paint Kit for the brightest colors.
Featured in our August Monthly Stencil Spotlight, the Buddy Circle is an excellent community playground stencil for inclusion and empathy. Are there a few children at your school who are feeling left out on the playground? The Buddy Circle, painted with bright Sherwin-Williams paint, is the perfect custom stencil for you. Simply have the child sit or stand in the Buddy Circle, signaling to other children that the child in need is looking for a friend. The other children can then come to the Buddy Circle and ask the lonely child to play with them. Best of all, the Buddy Circle can be used with our Peace Path by Soul Shoppe, Yoga Poses, Community Togetherness or Inspirational Words stencil kits to create an inclusive and mindful environment.
Ocean Inspired Activity Circuit
My personal favorite, the Ocean Inspired Activity Circuit is perfect for remembering those lost summer days as the winter draws nearer and nearer! A combination of high-intensity activities, this custom stencil collection includes the Kelp Tiptoe, the Sea Jump, Surf Pop Up, Swim Strokes and Whirlpool Spin, all painted in bright, thick colors. This playground stencil can be arranged side-by-side, in a large square, or in any other pattern you can think of, creating virtually endless circuits for your kids to enjoy all winter long. The Ocean Inspired Activity Circuit can also be paired with my favorite custom hopscotch stencil, the Dolphin Hopscotch, for another layer of activity.
