Playground Safety and Design Resources

Design permanent playground activities that help make activity time more positive and productive: alphabet and number grids, hopping and skipping lines, and multiuse circles and squares are just a few of the nearly 100 activities that can be added. The program is intended to maximize the number of students involved in physical activity, rather than having them wait in line, or just stand around talking.
