Fork Walrus Diagram from www.daniellesplace.comHow to Make the Walrus Pocket Buddy Made from a Plastic Fork:

1. Hold a plastic fork in your left hand (if you are right-handed)so that it is parallel to the table with the tines facing down as shown in the diagram to the right.

2. Hold the lighter with your right hand underneath the fork near the top of the handle where the head of the fork meets the handle. (See diagram to the right.) *Do not hold the lighter too close to the fork because it could catch fire. You only want to heat it up. (This part of the craft is for adults only.

Hold it in place for about ten seconds until the plastic hardens.
