What You Need:

  • Tuna can or similar-sized can that has the top removed and has been completely cleaned
  • Computer cooling fan cover
  • Single, self-igniting charcoal briquettes
  • Lighter
  • Needle nose pliers

What You Do:

  1. Unscrew a cooling fan cover from an old computer or electrical appliance. This will be used as your grill.
  2. Cut a few small notches in the tuna can to secure the cover on top.
  3. Have your child place a single charcoal briquette in the tuna can.
  4. Light the self-igniting briquette and place the cover over the can using the pliers. Be careful, as the briquette will be very hot.
