Introduction: How to Start a Fire With a Magnifying Glass.

If you have ever tried to start a fire with a magnifying glass you may have got your paper to get smoking, but not to light. But it's simple to succeed in doing so with a easy trick!

Step 1: Get Your Stuff.

You'll need a peace of paper, a magnifying glass, and a black sharpie marker. ( don't cut yourself:)
