Bonus props include: “stop” sign, “slow” sign, “street closed” sign, two “arrow” signs, large “construction zone” sign, large cement block pile, three individual cement blocks, and two barricade striped bars. Cut out the props using a sharp blade and assemble for stage decorations as follows:
- Stop/ Slow Sign– Tape a large paint stir stick on the back of the stop sign with Mavalus Tape then use rolls of tape on the back of the slow sign and attach to the back of the stop sign with the paint stir stick sandwiched between. Use the hand-held signs to direct traffic in the halls or direct clapping from the stage for fun.
- Street Closed Sign– Decorate around the stage using the orange safety fence available at Lowe’s or Home Depot. Use mic stands as fence posts and secure the fence to the mic stands with Mavalus Tape. Attach the “Construction Zone” sign & “Street Closed” sign to the fence with tape on the front edge of the stage.
- Arrow Caution Signs- These signs can be secured to tall mic stands or create sign posts by using PVC pipe in coffee cans or plastic buckets filled with cement then spray-painted gray. Tip- PVC pipe is inexpensive and sold in 10’ lengths so ask the store to cut it in half and you will have two five-foot sign posts. Cardboard Tubes are available at Mr. Mark’s Classroom.
- Cement Block Pile– This prop looks great as a construction load for the crane to lift. The block pile is about five feet wide and three feet high. It’s easy to cut out and prop up with a chair and you’re done. Simple! Add the three separate cement blocks along the front of the pile by taping on a small triangle kickstand to the back of each block and place along the front of the pile to create a more three-dimensional look on your stage. Bungee cords or ropes can be added to the block pile extending up to the crane hook for added interest.
