Handprint Forky Craft For Kids From Toy Story 4

Isn’t Toy Story 4 the greatest?! 

If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for??? 

We saw it opening weekend as a family and Disney did an awesome job at creating the fourth movie! Of course, the star of the show was Bonnie’s new little DIY toy, Forky. 

After seeing it we couldn’t resist combining our love of handprint art & crafts for kids with this little guy to create a simple handprint Forky craft children will love making! 

Read on below to see just how easy he is to make with your kids or students!

If you’re anything like us, you may be wondering why his name is Forky instead of Sporky. Sorry to say, we’ve got no ideas. Our only guess is maybe it’s because a 5 year old named him!

Who knows?

Whatever the reason, there’s something so lovable about that silly little guy who just wants to go to the trash! 

Since Bonnie made Forkie at her kindergarten orientation, the supplies to make this handprint craft are just as simple (they’re actually even simpler than learning how to make a Forky at home). 

Handprint Forky Supplies

Directions

  1. To make a card, take your piece of white card stock and fold it in half. Position the fold line to the left and trace your child’s left hand onto the paper with the pinky finger on the folded edge of paper. Cut out the handprint, leaving the fold line in tact along the pinky finger. 
  2. Use the pencil to draw on Forky’s eyebrows and mouth, leaving space for the goggly eyes in between. Once you are happy with the way it looks continue to the next step.
  3. Use the red marker to color in Forky’s eyebrows. 
  4. Glue the googly eyes beneath the eyebrow. 
  5. Fill in Forky’s mouth with the blue marker. 
  6. Use the red crayon to draw Forky’s cheeks on either side of his mouth. 

That’s it! 

What Age Range Is This Craft For? 

Because of the simplicity of this craft, we’d recommend this activity for kids of all ages all the way down from older toddlers to kids in elementary school. 

If you’ll be doing this handprint craft with toddlers, you will most likely need to help them with all of the steps. But since it’s easy, it won’t take long. You can let your toddler help you use the glue stick to glue on the eyes. Depending on their fine motor skills, they may also be able to fill in Forky’s eyebrow and mouth with the markers. 

Older children should be able to do most of this craft on their own. If they have mastered scissor skills enough to cut out their own handprint, they’ll have all the skills they need to do this craft on their own. 

For children in the middle, like preschool and kindergarteners, an adult will need to help with some of the steps. 

Notes For Doing This Craft In The Classroom

If you’re planning on doing this Toy Story craft in the classroom or other large setting like a library or daycare, there are a few things to consider. 

First, we’d suggest determining the skill level of the kids involved. 

If they are younger, it may be best to have a few adult helpers to assist you. You’ll need someone to help them trace as well as cut out their handprint so they can color the craft. 

We’d also suggest using glue sticks instead of liquid glue, since it’s a less messy way to secure the eyes onto the handprints.

If you’re especially concerned about using glue, you can also buy sticker backed googly eyes. Our only note when using these is that they can be quite tricky to remove the paper backing, so you’ll still need adult assistance with them. 

No matter how you make this handprint craft, we’re sure kids will love it!
