Dear Families, 

Rainbow Tree sends seasonal newsletters!  This is your Fall 2017 newsletter.   We hope you find it informative.  We have a few winter options coming up for children & a Feng Shui event next week!  Summer camp dates will be posted in early January so look for those in the next newsletter!   

It was a wonderful summer season of camps!  I love how camp comes to life when children arrive.  If your child hasn't yet been to camp but you are curious of whether it would be a good fit, please do email or call Lisa Haverly to discuss further. Camps are open to ALL children.   Parent testimonials can be read HERE

Tips for Motor Planning & Body Awareness Challenges 

Often children who have challenges with motor planning or body awareness require more proprioceptive input or input to muscles and joints to increase awareness of where their body is in space.  Here are some ideas if your child struggles with body awareness:

1.  Create obstacle courses at home that require the child to climb under heavy cushions or over them, climb over a pile of pillows or crash into them, walk like a bear around the table, slither like a snake under a table.  Creating the obstacle course and planning it out with your child is not only a part of the fun but also supports motor planning.  
2.   Chore or job ideas:  Your child can help carry the filled laundry basket to and from the laundry room, perhaps push or pull the garbage can to the curb, wash a window (perhaps they can draw on the window first with window safe markers or crayons), help carry in groceries. 
3.  Simon Says game - Simon says "jump up and down". Simon says "balance on one foot for a count of 10". Simon Says "hop like a frog or a rabbit".   Simon says "first put the bean bag on your head and then behind your back" 
4.  Progressive Muscle Relaxation - squeezing the muscles of each body part and then relaxing.  This increases body awareness and can also be helpful in calming the body.  The Sun Salutation yoga series is also an easy sequence to start the day.  
5.  Yoga poses - choose your favorite poses and spend 5 minutes doing yoga!  Cosmic Yoga has some fun youtube videos. 
6.  Other ideas:  playing in snow, raking leaves and jumping into them, tug of war with a long rope, hiking up hills, swimming, and climbing trees. 

Pumpkin Pie Play-Do Recipe


  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice (to bring out the fall smell).   
  • To make this, you will just whisk all of the ingredients in a pan & put it on the stove.
  •  Cook it on medium heat for a few minutes.
  •  It will start out runny, but quickly form into a ball.
  • When it gets thick, remove it from the heat, but continue to stir it.
  • When it is semi-cool, take it out and place it on a floured surface.
  • Knead the dough.
  • Sprinkle another 1/2 Tablespoon in and keep kneading.
  • Store in a ziplock bag
