Keep a Candle Burning Underwater!
Magic tricks can't hold a candle to this scientific triumph! Watch your child's astonishment as he sees that he can make a candle burn below water, and create a very bizarre candle souvenir. With just the open flame above the water's surface, this process will transform the candle to a hollow tube of wax. The water surrounding the candle is the secret to this "trick"! It keeps the exterior of the candle at a cool temperature, so the area touching the water never melts!
