When I was a kid, I would always ask my dad if he had any leftover papers from the office. Once he'd give me a box filled with papers, I would go outside of our house to burn them near a mango tree.
For some reason, I had always been enamored at the sight of fire and burning objects.
If you're also interested in fire, you should definitely check out these tricks. Read on!
As much as fire has helped humankind for thousands of years, it can also be used for fun.
But don't try them if you feel like it would be too harmful to conduct.
All you need here are a lighter, a candle holder, and a candle. Once you've lighted a candle, blow the candle immediately. Once the smoke rises up, place the lighter above and watch the flame move down back to the candle.
For this activity, you need the following: a plate, candle, water, narrow glass, and food coloring.
Place the food coloring on a measuring cup containing water, and pour on the plate where the candle is placed. Next, light the candle and place the narrow glass around it. This will make the water rise inside the narrow glass and lift the lighted candle.
You'll be needing a plate, lighter, clip, and some crayons. Place the clip on a plate, then place the crayon inside the clip. Light the crayon on the top until a flame is created.
Get the following items: lighter, tray, and ping pong balls. Light a ping pong ball on top, and watch it burn.
You should prepare a lighter, nail, candle, and two drinking glasses. Put a needle in the middle of the candle, then place the candle between the glasses. Light up both ends and watch the fire move up and down.
Get a tall bottle, some rubbing alcohol, and a lighter. Place some alcohol inside the bottle and shake the bottle while it's closed. After this, light the inside of the bottle.
Get a blow torch and a metal pipe that contains some screen mesh. Light the portion of the pipe with the screen mesh and place it in a vertical position to hear the sound.
For this experiment, you will need a lighter, some rubbing alcohol, baking soda, sugar, and a plate.
Prepare four cups of sugar and a part of baking soda. Place this mixture on a plate and pour some rubbing alcohol. Light it up and watch what happens.
Prepare a metal container, a lighter, rubbing alcohol, a mesh trash can, and a lazy susan or a record player. Place some rubbing alcohol in the metal container, then place the container inside the trash can. Put the trash can on the lazy susan or the record player. Light up the container and make the trash can spin.
You will need a tray, some steel wool, and a lighter. Put the steel wool on the tray, then light the steel wool and watch the magic happen.
