Paper Bag Forky Craft

Toy Story 4 may not be the newest Disney movie released but we just can’t get enough of its newest character, Forky! That’s why we’ve made this paper bag Forky craft.

We’ve made lots of fun Toy Story 4 crafts for kids in the past and this one is our newest addition.

It’s simple, cool, and great to play with even after all the crafting is done!

Be sure to download our free printable template to make it super simple to recreate with your kids.

Forky Puppet Notes

Inside our free download, we gave you an option of two different mouths. One is the classic Forky smile and the other is the surprised Forky mouth.

Choose either one or feel free to make up your own Forky expression!

As you can see from the pictures, we did one Forky puppet with arms and the other one without the arms.

We actually prefer the one without arms for a few reasons. First, it’s much easier to just cut out the rectangle for his body.

If you choose to do the arms, your child will have to be good at precise cutting or you’ll have to cut it out for them.

Another reason we like to skip the arms is that they’re easy to accidentally rip. We’d suggest just putting the red rectangle on the puppet if you’re making it with toddlers, preschoolers, and other young kids.

This Forky craft would be a fun activity to do at a Toy Story birthday party or just when the kids are bored!
