Giving Life to an Old Game

Way back in 1989 a company called Pressman made a “board game” called Acrobats.  It was advertized as “The Battiest Balancing Game Ever!”  I picked it up at a yard sale.  The dice were gone and the box had seen better days, but the game is still fun and it is a permanent part of my Bat Theme.


The children take turns and see how many bats they can get to hang in “the cave.”  There are basic balancing principles and fine motor skills that are enhanced.  The game also seems to lead to lots of giggling.
