- Draw a picture of your pollinator on a 14 cm x 21.5 cm (5 ½" x 8 ½") piece of paper.

- Use a marker to trace the outline of your pollinator on the plastic rectangle.
- Cut out the shape.
- Clean the marker off the plastic shape with a tissue.
- Roll a piece of masking tape with the sticky side facing out to make a cylinder.
- Place it on the back of the plastic shape.
- Fasten the shape to your paper.
- Use crayons to colour things your pollinator likes around the plastic shape.
- Press hard with the crayon.
- Leave some paper white.
- Draw some marker along the outer edge of the plastic shape.
- Dip a small piece of sponge into water.
- Squeeze most of the water out of the sponge.
- The sponge should be damp not wet or the colours will be very pale.
- Drag the wet sponge over the marker ink and onto the crayon design.
- Continue in this way until the outer frame is complete.
- Gently remove the plastic shape from the paper.
- You have made a stencil print.
- Write about your pollinator inside the shape.
