Where can I find "regulation" measurements for marking playground games like hopscotch and four-square?

Does anyone know where can I find free plans for marking games onto a playground surface? We're working on revamping the playground at my kid's school. We want to paint some games like hopscotch and four-square onto the surface but I'm having trouble finding standard measurements to do this. Does anyone have a suggestion or a link that would be helpful?
