Making it Magical

Mansion Memories presents MUSiC, MINDFULNESS EVENTS FOR KIDS

Every Sunday in October, Mansion Memories is hosting a “Making it Magical” virtual event, open to all families.

The nonprofit typically holds Magical Days at the Burrage Mansion in Redlands, giving children in crisis a day filled with activities, games, food, performances, and fun. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mansion Memories has changed course and is now holding Making it Magical events online to bring joy to all children. Each Making it Magical program starts at 4 p.m., and streams on social media.

“We are so thankful for the quality of presenters that have partnered this month with us,” Executive Director Dianna Lawson said. “Who would have thought back in March that we would have done 30 weeks straight of Making it Magical and Quaran-Tea presentations for our community and beyond. As of this week, we hit 6,250 social media engagements. People are watching and enjoying this new way of Mansion Memories meeting our mission and outreach to kids.”

Here are October’s events:

The lovely sounds of Polynesian music will fill the air during this musical performance by the Kalama Brothers.
