Game 1: Hopscotch
This is a classic game that kids can play on any surface. Draw a hopscotch board on the asphalt with chalk and have your children take turns hopping through the squares.
Worried about chalk marks dirtying your new asphalt surface? No need! Action Asphalt can apply a sealant to your asphalt that will protect it from staining and fading.
Game 2: Soccer
What’s better than a game of soccer on a sunny day? Soccer is played everywhere, and it’s perfect for asphalt surfaces. Just grab your ball and some friends (or siblings).
Keep a wary eye on the weather, though if it looks like rain or snow, call Action Asphalt to schedule an appointment for asphalt maintenance. We’re also happy to provide sealcoating services to protect your asphalt from the elements.
Game 3: Capture the Flag
Here’s another excellent game for asphalt surfaces. All you need is a flag and some space.
One team hides the flag, and the other team tries to capture it. If a member from the other team touches you while you’re carrying the banner, you have to give it up. The game will end once one team captures the other team’s flag or time runs out.
Game 4: Tag
Remember this exciting game from when you were a kid? It’s just as much fun now as it was then.
One unlucky person becomes “it” and tries to tag the other players. If you’re tagged, you replace “it.” When everyone has been tagged or time runs out, the game ends.
Asphalt paving, if done well, results in a smooth, hard surface. This makes for a perfect playing field for a variety of games.
Game 5: Dodgeball
Another ball game on this list, dodgeball, is a lot of fun and can be played with any number of players.
Divide the players in two teams and stand at opposite ends of the playing area. Throw a ball at one of the players on the other team, and they must catch it. If they don’t, they are out.
The last player standing on the winning team is the winner. Be careful of falls on the smooth asphalt.
Game 6: Marbles
If your children prefer a quieter game, marbles are perfect. All you need are a few small glass or metal objects (marbles) and a flat surface to play on like asphalt!
That way, your kids can enjoy the weather outside while playing a game that doesn’t make too much noise. Just be careful of the asphalt getting too hot in direct sunlight. It could cause burns if your child is playing barefoot.
Asphalt is a safe surface to play on, and with the proper precautions in place (sunscreen, hydration, safety gear), it can be a lot of fun for children!
