Step 1: Materials
For this project, you will need scissors, needlenose pliers, a straw, a match, and a lighter.
Step 2: Cutting
Start by cutting the stray past the bendy price on the long side. Discard the long side. If you straw is straight, skip this mini paragraph.
Next, cut the long piece about 3/4 of the way down the straw.
Step 3: Melting 1
Take the piece you just cut and pinch it with the pliers a little bit down and proceed to melt the end of the straw closed.
Step 4: Adding the Match
Now it is time to add the match! Just drop the match in making sure there is enough of the top of the straw to melt closed!
Step 5: Melting 2
Now it is time to seal the straw! Just follow the instructions in step 3 to seal the straw. Now you have a perfectly watertight match ready for any survival situation that Mother Nature decides to throw at you!
