- Matches (or some other way of lighting it)
With these three items, you can achieve a cool-looking, burning, newspaper ball of fiery flames... Quite fun, actually...
But keep in mind, this is fire, and can be dangerous if not kept controlled. I would recommend doing this away from trees and on an un-flammable surface, like a driveway or something.
Step 1: Assembly
Wasn't that easy?
Step 2: Launching it
Place the fire kite down, and take two matches, light them, and light two of the four corners at a time at a time. This part must be done quickly, or else it won't work.
Now stand back and, if you did everything correctly, have fun watching it fly up!
(It may burn to a point that it looks like it's just burned and it's not going to fly, but give it a few more seconds, it should work. If a minute goes by and it's still not working, you may have done something wrong and should retry.)
This is best done at night when the effect will be at it's best. And remember, the larger the piece of paper you use, the larger the fire kite will be.
Have fun! Thanks!
