This article will teach you how to create a small fire with a magnifying glass. Make sure not to let the fire get out of control!

================================================================

1. Get some tinder such as newspaper.

================================================================

2. go somewhere where the fire can not burn anything else but the tinder (such as a sidewalk).

================================================================

3.  Take a small piece of dry wood and put the edge of the newspaper on the edge of the wood.

================================================================

4. Hold the magnifying glass in front of the sun so that a small bright dot will appear on the newspaper. Adjust as needed to get dot as small as possible. The dot has to be a circle as small as possible, or else it will take a long time.

================================================================

5.  Be patient. It may take up to 4 to 9 hours to actually get a flame(seconds if sun is strong enough).

================================================================

6.  Put the fire out as soon as it moves from where you started it. You can stomp on it with your shoe or throw water on it.

================================================================

7. Ensure that the area you put out is not hot enough to burn anyone or catch on fire again.
