Pink Tower

100% of 100

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.

  • Cognitive challenge
  • Helps with dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Familiar building blocks
  • Templates for guidance
  • Creative outlet
  • Full instructions

The Pink Tower cubes are used to differentiate size. Because each cube is the same size in each dimension, orientation is not an issue. Using the supplied templates, the person with dementia learns to sort the cubes by size and recognize which cube is bigger or smaller.

Once they are familiar with the cubes, the real fun begins! Stacking them one on top of the other to make the Pink Tower, making their own shapes or just manipulating the blocks are all great cognitive exercises and provide dexterity challenges.

This smaller sized Pink Tower is easier to handle for people with dementia.

Suitable For:

A great activity for almost anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's who has the dexterity to handle the blocks, especially people who enjoy putting things in order.

Package Includes:
  • 10 pink cubes varying in size from .7cm to 7cm (about 1/4" to 2 3/4")
  • Laminated templates for guidance
  • Full instructions

This product is proudly assembled and packaged by the people of The Ark, a community organization dedicated to providing services for persons with special challenges.
