Fauna suggested double stick tape. It worked like a dream! We went around to the many different plants in our yard exploring their pollen. We discovered that some pollen let the wind carry it through the air and some pollen was very sticky and stuck to the flower. The wind pollen is from the plants which we have allergies to; the sticky pollen sticks to the flower unless a pollinator of the 6 or 2 legged variety comes along to help out. Here is how we recorded our observations:
Using double stick tape on black construction paper (so the pollen would really pop) we would either shake the pollen from the flower or rub the flower onto the tape; depending on how the flower released its pollen.
After recording and taking samples, we headed inside to have a closer look through a microscope. It was amazing to see the many different shapes pollen can be. We also got on the computer and visited The Biology of Plants, it has a great page on Pollination and an educational pollination song.
