There’s no need to have EVERYTHING done before others arrive!
Signs & safety are first priorities, as noted below.
All other set-up tasks should take place with help from playground visitors. Feel free to direct helpers to the Playscape Map (located on the back of our cardboard table toppers). 🙂
|Pri 1||Place tables & table toppers for sign-in/donations
Tables go in a loose L-shape – the sign-in table right in front of the entrance doors, and the volunteer calendar table topper at a 45 degree angle to the left of that.
Then, put a third table going to the wall just to the left of the entrance doors. This becomes a makeshift “foyer” for incoming visitors with enough space to navigate strollers…and it also creates a visual barrier for Littles who might otherwise run right out the door!
|Pri 2||Place 1 mat each across the fireplace and stage stairwells|
|Pri 3||Put out wooden sidewalk sign|
|Then…||Roll the thin blue mats to Infant and Tumbling sections (use the colored rolling toys as dollies)|
|Begin to lay out mats according to the Playscape Map|
|Pull out & place thick blue mats for Climbing section|
|Pull out the toys & have fun!|
