Introduction: Match Rocket (EASY!)

About: Basketball and bmx are my sports.. Go shooting ( .22 ,.223, 12 gauge shoty) haha just like to have fun!!

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

Aluminium foil

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!!
