This is my first instructable so I wanted to do something simple. I'm going to show you how to make simple flares. Just to tell you, the picture is something that I copied and pasted so it will not look like this.
BTW, this was published January 27, 2011 but not published for some reason.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
For this you will need:
-a lighter (preferably the long ones)
-needle nose pliers
Step 2: Assembly
No pics here so I'll describe how to make it.
First, get a match.
Second, get a piece of foil about 1.5in by 1.5in.
Third, wrap the head of the match in the foil.
Last make a hole in the foil at the tip of the match head.
You are done!
Step 3: Using
Grab the wooden part of the match with the pliers. Point it away from yourself, others, and flammable stuff. Heat up the foil with the lighter and soon a flame will shoot out of the hole.
Use this at your own risk, don't blame me if you get hurt. This is also my first instructable so its really bad, I also made it on the school computer.
