Fuel Up to Play 60 Playground Stencils

Fuel Up To Play 60Fuel 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.

“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.
