Spooky Science #6 ~ Leaping Flame

What you will need:
*matches
*candle
*candle holder.

What do you do:

We tried many different candles and nothing worked like the birthday candle. We dripped a little wax on a tin top from another candle and we stood the birthday candle up on that to secure it. Next you will want to allow the candle to burn for about a minute so that it will make alot of smoke. The birthday candle was just more smokey.

Blow the candle out gently so you do not disturb the thin trail of smoke that will come from the candle. Hold the lit match in the smoke away from the wick. The flame will travel from the match, through the smoke, and relight the candle!

Have fun!!!
