Many schools, parks and recreational facilities need a chess board that doesn't need to be set up and taken down with each use. Painting a chess board on concrete, blacktop, decking or any other solid surface is frequently a great alternative to purchasing a chess board.
GiantChessUSA offers a high quality, CNC created, flexible template that makes it simple to paint a chess board on any solid surface. Can you figure out how to make a template without purchasing one? Sure, but when you see the quality of the workmanship that goes into this template, you wish you purchased one!
This stencil can be repeated to create a checkers or chess board or a portion can be used to create a tic-tac-toe board. You can even make the squares for a hopscotch! Students can be the actual game board pieces wearing colored shirts or hats, or make their own large scale game pieces in art class.
Application Instructions, Paint Supplies and Game Ideas are available for download – see Description tab below.
Note that the paint colors and in some cases the images shown are just a few examples of how the stencil could be painted down. Let your imagination soar!
