Grab a few pipe cleaners and some glue to create this adorable Forky Pencil Topper, reminiscent o f Toy Story 4. It’s such a fun kids craft!
Toy Story 4 was one of the best movies this past summer.. drawing in over 400 million nationwide. The truth is, I sobbed in this movie … so much in fact that I had to leave the theater and go find my way to the restroom.
I remember pulling a huge gob of toilet paper from the roll and walking back in — trying (very hard) to pretend that I hadn’t been crying. It’s not all too often that I’ll pack up 5 kids and take them into the theater.. simply because they can be disruptive.
However, I chose a later show and we had the entire theater to ourselves. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget!
Following the movie, Forky became famous. Every time forks were pulled out for dinner, my kids talked about Forky. Forky was famous and they wanted nothing more than to recreate him at home so he could help them do their homework.
Forky Inspired Pencil Topper
Take one white pipe cleaner and fold the fork tongs. Allow it so you have about a one-inch piece that hangs down. Then wrap the other end around to it and start working it across the middle.
Fold one end of another white piece over one side. Keep working it back and forth until the whole middle is filled in. Fold the last whole white piece through the bottom of the white piece you just made.
Then take that whitetail and wrap it around the pencil.
Take the whole red piece and wrap it around the white part that is on the pencil.
Then fold the ends of the red to make a few fingers.
Snip off a small piece of red from the last red piece. Make it so it is slightly curved. Add a dab of glue just below the center of the spork tines. Then glue the eyes just below that.
Make a tiny half circle out of the blue pipe cleaner and use the scissors to cut it off. Glue that blue piece just below the eyes. Then allow all glue to dry.
After the glue is dry, flip it over and take a small white piece of pipe cleaner to make a piece that the pencil slides through. This will help to keep the spork topper from flopping around.
This Forky Pencil Topper is such a fun craft activity for a rainy day, or to incorporate in your next sleepover. The kids can make one or more, and come back to school with their own fun reminder of their favorite movie characters.
Double bonus – this is such a fun sleepover craft! Round up the sleepover kids and make them all re-create forky to take home!
