Adult Crafting: Including Disney titles from Thunder Bay Press

Who says kids get to have all the fun? Why not adults?

Here are three amazingly fun adult crafts that will put a smile on your face.

Zootopia Crochet


Create these adorable Disney Zootopia crochet models to add to your collection or share with friends. The kit contains all the materials you need to make Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde: yarn, a crochet hook, needle and thread, stuffing, felt, and safety eyes. Step-by-step directions accompanied by color photos make the instructions for all twelve models easy to follow. These cute and cuddly characters will keep you from going savage!

In Emilee’s opinion:

This kit included 12 projects from the world of Zootopia. It also included yarn in gray, cream, pink, black, blue, orange, beige, and green, embroidery floss in pink, black, yellow, purple and indigo, two pairs of plastic safety eyes, size 3.25 mm crochet hook, a large needle and stuffing. Each figure would be a great play set for your children/grandchildren, etc etc. It also included crochet stitches and techniques with photos for each step. And the figures were about 8″ or less. If you have extra yarn lying around, you could make more of these. I thought that Kati Galusz was very talented and creative. I definitely recommend Zootopia crochet to all those who love to crochet and play with yarn.

Disney Classic Paint-by-Number


The animated films of Walt Disney are treasured by fans of all ages, and now you can paint your own scenes from these classics using paint-by-number techniques. Bring to colorful life scenes from Alice in WonderlandThe Jungle BookLady and the TrampPinocchio, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The sturdy canvases can be hung up on the wall or displayed on the included stands. The accompanying 48-page book contains tips on how to mix colors and apply them to the canvases, in addition to insightful commentary on Disney’s classic films.

In Cassie’s opinion:

I was excited to review this because not only because it is Disney but my daughter loves art! This book contains ten acrylic paints and five canvases and a beautiful book with short colorful Disney movie stories. My nine year old loved the book and the many paint by number canvases. I would recommend this for older kids because the directions say to mix colors together. This would make a great gift for an artist or anyone who adores Disney. Great product!

Where’s Kitty? Dot-to-Dot


From Rio to Paris, Kitty shows up in some unlikely places! These thirty puzzles will keep your tail twitching with more than 500 dots to join on each page. Find out if Kitty is stretching her legs on the Great Wall of China, passing the time in the shadows of Big Ben’s clock tower, or enjoying a lazy afternoon in the sun at the Taj Mahal. Connecting the dots to find Kitty can improve concentration, increase hand-eye coordination, and will provide hours of fun for all ages.

In Emilee’s opinion:

I love dot to dot activity books and Where’s Kitty provided fun puzzles to solve. I’m not a cat lover but… it started out saying, “Hello fellow cat lover. There’s a small, glove-trotting cat who has ventured to some of the world’s most iconic destinations. Each page shows a new place, but the question is…Where’s kitty? Join the dots to reveal the famous backdrop and discover where kitty is in the world-and on the page.” So, each page had a few sentences to give the reader a clue as to what the picture would be. At the end of the book, there are thumbnails of the completed dot-to-dots and the name of the place. But, don’t peak because that may take the fun out of trying to guess each place. I loved this book.
