The Program Room will be temporarily closed for some scheduled improvements and maintenance. Program Room Fun will resume on Saturday, September 18!
Here is a building tool that you will find featured in the Program Room throughout this month that I love to play with! They are called Super Acrobats!
Super Acrobats are an Open-Ended toy! Open-Ended toys come with no instruction manuals or rules; the kids choose how to play with them. Many of the kids who visit the Program Room like fitting the acrobats together in a long line. Others enjoy building them up high in a pyramid. Some will build a circle of acrobats. It’s all about the learning process and the play experience.
What is an acrobat? Would you like to be an acrobat? In what place would you be most likely to find an acrobat performing (hint: the circus)? Have you ever been to the circus? What did you see there? What kinds of movements do you think an acrobat uses?
Super Acrobats are made by an Italy based company called Ludus Toys. To learn more about Ludus Toys and the Super Acrobats, visit here.
