If you are looking for an innovative way to decorate your pattern imprinted concrete driveway, then you’ve come to the right place! If you are looking for more ways to entertain your children then hey, we might just be able to help you kill two birds with one stone!
Think for a minute about classic children’s playground games, such as shuffleboard and hopscotch. These are easy to implement on concrete, with just a few simple extra materials. We’ll concentrate on shuffleboard for the rest of this article, but for any such games, the principles are similar.
For a shuffleboard court you need an area of concrete 52 feet long by 10 feet wide. It is a good idea to leave a bit of extra space either side to leave space for the players to stand when not playing.
The concrete needs to completely flat and level, so you’ll need to make sure it is levelled carefully when wet, otherwise you might have to consider grinding it down and filling in gaps. Next up, you should look at painting your court with an attractive colour and sealing it with a clear finish to make it hard wearing and smooth.
The final touch is to paint your game markings on the court (you can get templates to help you with this) and wax the court with shuffleboard wax so that the shuffleboard discs will slide smoothly! You need to re-wax the court on a regular basis.
