Make a Zoo-flake

When our family went to see the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, this week we saw a trailer for the next Disney animated feature film that will be arriving soon in theaters, ZOOTOPIA.  My kids excitedly asked if we could see this movie next week while they are out from school on Winter Break, but unfortunately we are going to have to wait a bit longer than that as ZOOTOPIA isn't being released in the United States until March 4, 2016.

To provide a bit of winter fun for my kids and our A Geek Daddy blog readers while we wait for the arrival of the film in theaters, our friends at Walt Disney Studies have provided some ZOOTOPIA themed activity sheets that let you create snow flakes incorporating the characters featured in the movie's trailer.  Make your own Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, or Flash Zoo-flake with these fun cut-out activity sheets.

About the movie:

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other.  Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together -- a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything.  But when rookie police officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a force of big tough animals isn't so easy.  Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with fast talking, scam artist fox Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery.


  1. Zootopia looks really cute, I'm looking forward to checking it out in theaters ... I guess not until March!

  2. How fun. I'm really looking forward to taking our girls to see this movie. Bookmarking this project for the next time our granddaughter is over.

  3. "Zootopia" looks really cute. Sloths running the DMV ... too funny!

  4. Looks like it will be a cute movie! I always try to stay current on my children's movies. My students are always talking to me about them, and it's a good way to relate.

  5. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. Thanks for the info.
