There is something very appealing about building the Pink Tower. Setting one cube on top of the previous and watching as the tower teeters its way upwards as each cube is placed is challenging and fun.
The Pink Tower is one of the classic Montessori activities. It can be used both one-on-one with a person and in small groups.
It is a fun way to provide cognitive challenges as well as exercise visual perception and fine motor control. It's always one of the favourites when we work with people with dementia and Alzheimer's.
