How to Make 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 and 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.
Now that your Forky inspired pencil topper is complete and the dry, let your kids use their new pencil topper for all of their writing. This is a great way to inspire kids to practice their handwriting skills, have a pretend pencil person puppet show, or anything else that’s Forky inspired.
