Hakuna Matata! Sketching Stars heads to the Pridelands

2023's competition is finally here!


It’s time to transport your pupils to the African Savannah with our biggest Sketching Stars competition yet — in collaboration with Disney’s The Lion King!

This year, Sketching Stars is challenging your pupils to step into the spotlight and explore the roar-some world of musical theatre and costume design.

KS1: Our KS1 competition sheets task your pupils with designing their very own mask — just like the ones worn by Mufasa, Scar and Simba in the stage production of Disney’s The Lion King ✨

KS2: Our KS2 competition sheets will see your pupils design their very own mask and costume fit for a stage production — plus, the opportunity to bring their character to life ✏️

What’s more, whilst the competition sheets are the ** mane ** event ,we also have a selection of The Lion King-themed bonus sheets available to help spark your pupils’ imagination — suitable for both KS1 and KS2!

Every teacher who enters their class will receive a personal STAEDTLER stationery pack (that’s right, all of you!). But that’s not all — two lucky winners (one KS1 and one KS2) will receive…


  • a Disney Musicals in Schools workshop for their school;
  • a personal STAEDTLER stationery bundle;
  • a bumper STAEDTLER stationery bundle for their class.

Plus, the winning pupils’ teachers (one from KS1 and one from KS2) will receive 2x tickets each to see Disney’s The Lion King live in London — with travel and accommodation paid for by STAEDTLER Teachers’ Club! So, what are you waiting for?

How to enter:


1. If you’re not already a Teachers’ Club member, you’ll need to sign up for free here to get access to this year’s competition sheets — plus hundreds of other FREE classroom resources! Already part of our Teachers’ Club tribe? Great! Head to step 2.

2. Download the competition sheets from the 'Resources' section and print them (in black and white or colour) and give them to your pupils to complete.

Kindly note that whilst several Disney’s The Lion King themed bonus sheets have been created to enhance your pupils’ creativity, you only need to complete and submit the competition sheet as part of your classroom’s entry.

3. Collect your pupils’ competition sheets — make sure they’ve included their names on each sheet!

4. Download and complete the Teacher’s Slip to accompany your pupils’ entries. Without this information, your entry will be invalid.

5. Send us your entries (and the Teacher’s Slip!) before midnight on Friday 24 November.

How do I send my pupils’ entries?

There are two ways to send us your entries — by email or by post. But however you’re entering, don’t forget to include that all-important Teacher’s Slip!

By post: once you’ve collected the competition sheets and completed the Teacher’s Slip, pop them all in an envelope and post them to:

Storage Giant
376 Newport Rd
CF23 9AE

By email: scan or take photos of your entries and Teacher’s Slip, and send via email in PDF, JPEG or PNG format to info@teachersclubuk.co.uk. File sizes too big, or sending multiple files at once? Try using a free online file sharing platform such as Dropbox or WeTransfer.


Entry is subject to our competition terms and conditions.

We can’t wait to see your pupils’ entries — good luck!
