• Newport Mansions Host Activities for Children This Summer

    The Newport Mansions will welcome families for fun and creative activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout July and August.

    Traveling Tuesdays will occur every Tuesday from July 9 through August 20 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Each program will take place at a different Newport Mansions property and will have a different theme, from wildlife conservation to Colonial-era toys to collecting things and much more. Young participants will learn about the theme and create a craft from provided supplies.

    Thursdays in the Garden will take place from July 11 through August 22 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at Green Animals Topiary Garden in Portsmouth, R.I. Children will enjoy the outdoor space and gardens and learn about nature, from bees to butterflies to growing plants. And always there will be a creative and active element to the morning’s activities.

    For each program, children will receive a stamp in their Newport Mansions Passport. After receiving four stamps they will earn a prize.

    Advance registration is required for each program. The activities are targeted to children ages 5 to 7 years old plus caregivers. Older and younger siblings are also welcome.
