A very simple fire making skill, involving the sun and a magnifying glass. The rays from the sun when concentrated into a small circle using a magnifying glass, can burn your fire bundle very easily.

Step 1: Materials

Fire bundle

Step 2: Process

First you need to focus the magnifying glass, trying to make the circle of light as small as possible as this will create the most heat.

Once you get a fire add bigger wood to crate a bugger fire.

And that's all it takes good luck with your new skill if you are surviving in the wilderness of simply just ran out of matches.
