Playing with matches is a very dangerous thing, but under very close adult supervision, these science experiments with matches can be a fun way to teach some incredible physics and scientific concepts to all ages!
Discover anything from creating your own cloud in a bottle, making water rise in a jar, and an easy way to teach kids fire safety with these experiments that use matches!
Just remember that all of these experiments require adult supervision!!! After all, we will be playing with fire!
Science Experiments With Matches
- Water Balloon In A Bottle Experiment– Fire inside a bottle heats up the air and creates a difference in air pressure that you can see when a balloon gets sucked into the bottle!
- Simple Fire Safety Experiment– This experiment is an easy and fun way to teach kids important fire safety tips and the relationship between fire and oxygen.
- Rising Water Experiment Step by Step– Watch water defy gravity as it is pushed into an upside-down jar thanks to an air pressure imbalance.
- 3 Easy Ways To Make a Cloud in a Bottle– There are many ways to create your own cloud in a bottle. We put our three favorite cloud making experiments to the test!
- Egg In a Bottle Experiment– Use the power of fire (and air pressure) to squeeze a boiled egg into a bottle!
- Egg in an Upside-Down Bottle Trick– Watch an egg defy gravity as it is sucked into an upside-down bottle from invisible air pressure forces!
- Candle In a Jar With Water Experiment– Water is sucked into a jar when the air pressure outside the jar becomes higher than the air pressure inside the jar!
- Underwater Burning Candle Experiment– You won’t beleive your eyes when a flame appears to be burning underwater in this cool experiment where water and fire meet!
- Balloon and Candle Experiment– Check out this cool trick that makes inflated balloons flame-resistant!
