    Step 1

    Ah, the family vacation packing list. It’s twice as hard to prep when little ones are in the picture, isn’t it? With the help of Disney, we’ve got some Zootopia-themed DIYs to liven up your suitcase.

    Step 2

    Zootopia is available on Blu-ray™, Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhere June 7th, just in time for summer vacation. These DIYs are easy to make and will make summer travels that much more exciting.

    Step 3

    First up, these downright adorable Judy and Nick backpacks. All you need are some solid colored backpacks, felt and a bit of patience. Let’s get to it!

    Step 4

    To make Judy’s eyes, cut out large half-circles of felt in black, white and blue.

    Step 5

    Use a hot glue to attach each layer.

    Step 6

    Then let dry.

    Step 7

    Use gray and pink felt for Judy’s ears.

    Step 8

    We decided to keep these floppy, but if you want them to stand upright, attach thin wire to the back and cover with another piece of gray felt.

    Step 9

    Hot glue the pieces.

    Step 10

    Then let dry.

    Step 11

    For Judy’s nose, cut out a small thin piece of pink felt.

    Step 12

    Twist three black pipe cleaners (aka whiskers!) together in the center.

    Step 13

    Hot glue the nose over the twist.

    Step 14

    Let dry.

    Step 15

    This is ALREADY adorable.

    Step 16

    Hot glue each piece to the backpack. Then, let dry.

    Step 17

    Voila! Hey Officer Judy Hopps, lookin’ good.

    Step 18

    To make Nick’s backpack, repeat the steps above with orange, white, green and black felt.

    Step 19

    Be sure to draw his mouth with a thick black pen.

    Step 20

    Don't forget the whiskers!

    Step 21

    Check out those eyebrows! Way to deliver the sass, Mr. Wilde.

    Step 22

    Hot glue Nick’s features to an orange backpack, then let dry. Easy peasy.
