Underwater burning candle

Home Science experiment to me is for her to ‘think’! I have to admit that she doesn’t comprehend everything we do together; but it is a good practice to make her wonder/think.

What we need for this underwater burning candle:

Cold water, candle, glass bottle, lighter

First pour cold water into the bottle with a candle (stick to the bottle with a double sided tape) until the edge of the candle.

Then light up the candle in the water.

And wait.

Eventually the candle (due to the melted wax) would be burning under water.
