Physical Challenge:
  • Aluminum foil
  • White, black, and gray polymer clay (available at most craft stores)
  • Cookie sheet
  • Small piece of yellow felt
  • Craft glue
  • Black marker
  • Plastic table covering
Prepare the Clay

Cover your work surface with the plastic covering. Massage small amounts of clay until it is pliable.

Make the Body and Legs

Use the gray clay to make the following pieces:

  • Flat oval (2” long) for the body
  • 4 snake-like pieces (3” long for the legs)
Make the Face

Use the white clay to make a triangle (about 1 1/2” across) for the face. Use the black clay to make the lemur’s eyes, nose, and ears.

Make the Tail

Roll two snake-like pieces (3” long) out of the white and black clay. Twist them together like a candy cane. Use this piece for the tail.

Bake Your Lemur

Put all the pieces together and place them on a foil-covered cookie sheet. Bake the clay lemur for 15 minutes at 275° F.

Add Eyes

After you take the craft out of the oven, glue two small circles of yellow felt on your lemur for eyes. Draw on pupils with a black marker.
