Introduction: Match Rocket (EASY!)
A very easy and quick project to do when bored! Not many unusual items needed and fun to do! I hope you enjoy :)
You will need (for 1 rocket):
8 matches/ match heads
Skewer about the same diameter as the match heads
A lighter of some kind
Pin or paper clip
Step 1: Cut Out
Cut out a piece of aluminium foil to about 5 inches by 7 inches.
Step 2: Roll
Roll the aluminium foil around the skewer tightly, make sure not to tear the foil at all!
Step 3: Secure
Roll up the shabbiest end of the foil like you do a tube of tooth paste, 3 times.
Step 4: Secure Prt.2
Take a little piece of foil and wrap around the folded end to ensure it doesn't unravel during 'take off'
Step 5: Match Heads
Cut all 8 match heads off the matches.
Step 6: Filling
Put all match heads inside the rolled up foil and push them all the way to the end one by one.
Step 7: Nozzle
Take the pin or paper clip and place in the end of the foil. Pinch the foil around the pin to create a nozzle.
Step 8: Lighting
Your all set for take off... Just lay down next to a match or light and wait for take off, good luck!! :) thanks for making my homemade match rocket!!
