This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
an 18 inch section of 2x4
a candle - 3/4 inch diameter or greater
a small box of matches - not a BOOK of matches

Give the 2x4, candle, matchbox, and pins to each team leader.

Tell the teams their task is to stand the 2x4 on end, attach the candle to a side of the 2x4, and light the candle.
They may use nothing except the materials they were just given and their hands.

There is no trick to figure out. They just need to come up with a way to do it.


Possible solutions:
heat the needles and stick them through the candle to pin it to the wood.
pin the matchbox to the wood and set the candle in the box.
others?
