Learn how to make Forky, the spork toy, just like Bonnie in Toy Story 4!
Who can ever get enough Disney in their lives?!
With the upcoming release of Toy Story 4, we’re sharing how to make one of the newest members of the Toy Story crew, Forky.
If you haven’t seen Toy Story 4 yet, you might be wondering who is Forky?
Forky is a simple little toy Bonnie makes in the movie from a spork and some craft supplies. Everyone seems to think since he’s a spork his name should be Sporky, but that’s not what Bonnie decided to name him, so Forky it is!
She loves him and brings him home to become one of her newest toys! Your kids will definitely want a homemade Forky of their own, so check out these easy directions.
Read on below to see how you can make a homemade Forky with your child or student! Also, be sure to check out all of our fun Toy Story 4 crafts for kids.
Make Your Own Forky Craft
What Do You Need To Make Forky?
In order to make Forky, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Adhesive googly eyes
- Pipe cleaners
- Popsicle sticks
- White clay
- Rainbow stickers
- Wikki Stix
- Teal marker
- Red marker
How To Make A Forky Directions
Cut your popsicle stick in half and use the teal marker to write Bonnie or your child’s name on the bottom of the popsicle sticks.
Take a small chunk of plain clay and make it into a volcano shape.
Stick the popsicle stick halves onto the underside of the clay with the “legs” angled outward a bit.
Use a blue Wikki Stix to make Forky’s mouth and press it on the spork. In this example, we made him surprised, but you can make it a smile or anything you want.
Use a red Wikki Stix to make his eyebrows.
Choose 2 different sized adhesive googly eyes and attach them to the middle of the spork.
Take your spork and press the base of it into the top of the clay volcano.
Next, we’re going to learn how to make Forky’s hands. Wrap your red pipe cleaners around the spork, in the middle of the handle. Shape the ends to make 3 fingers on each side.
Color the sides of Forky’s mouth with a marker then dab it with your finger to blur the marker and give him rosy cheeks.
Place your rainbow sticker on the edge of one foot.
Now you have your very own Forky!

The great thing about using Wikki Stix is they’re endlessly repositionable so your kids can change Forky’s eyebrow and mouth expressions as many times as they want!
After we made our first Forky, we made him a friend who we called Sporky, because shouldn’t that really be the correct name???
Your kids will have so much fun making their own customized Forky toy at home.
Just like the real Forky, he’s slightly fragile until the clay hardens so make sure your kids don’t play too rough with him.
