See Amazing! Beaches Resorts Welcomes Walkaround Julia, Sesame Street's Newest Character

April 11, 2017 - Beaches Resorts - Kids Activities & Programs

Following the landmark Sesame Street television debut of Julia, a new Sesame Street Muppet with autism, Beaches Resorts is excited to welcome the walkaround character to its resorts in Jamaica and Turks & Caicos beginning this fall!  With a new exciting activity in tow, Julia's debut also continues Beaches Resorts' 13-year partnership with Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, and expands the resort company's exclusive Beaches Resorts Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street® program.

In light of Autism Awareness Month and welcoming Julia, Beaches Resorts is also excited to introduce a new activity for families with children on the spectrum of which Julia will play a part in. As a proud sponsor of Sesame Street, Beaches Resorts is the only Caribbean resort company to offer engaging activities with a colorful cast of walkaround characters including Elmo, Cookie Monster, Super Grover, Zoe, Bert and Ernie, Abby Cadabby, The Count, Oscar the Grouch, Big Bird and, soon, Julia.  With an already exciting roster of hands-on activities available at Beaches Resorts, from Baking with Cookie Monster to Story Time with Elmo, Julia will bring forth a new activity, Amazing Art with Julia, just in time for the fall season.  

In this activity, children will be greeted by Julia, a 4-year-old girl character who has autism. Julia, who loves to paint, will highlight how people can express themselves through art. Using a range of materials, children will have the opportunity to explore, experiment and create in this open-ended art activity. Afterwards, children will talk about how they created their piece (colors, lines, shapes, etc.) and how their artwork is a celebration of who they are and their unique self!
