Here's some outdoor holiday fun, making match rockets.

In this "How To" video, I'm taking on another challenge to see "Does this Work?".

 

Well, it kind of worked. Maybe if I used the matches from a book instead of stick matches from a box, I' thinking it would have worked much better. I think the wood of the stick matches made it too heavy to fire off the launch pad.

Don't worry I'm not going to give up, I'll try it again with a different match and see how it works.

If anything it'll keep the kids, those old enough to light matches unsupervised that is, busy for a while getting it to fire.
