Cover your work surface with the plastic covering. Massage small amounts of clay until it is pliable.
Use the gray clay to make the following pieces:
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.
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.
Put all the pieces together and place them on a foil-covered cookie sheet. Bake the clay lemur for 15 minutes at 275° F.
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.
