Required:3 staffs, broomsticks, or sticks
2 3foot ropes
2 feet of twine
3 wooden matches

Preparation:Put all materials except one candle at the starting line.
Place the candle as far away from the starting line as the 3 staffs will reach when lashed together.
Light this candle.
Stand the unlit candle up by the starting line - this candle can not be moved.
Notes:This can be a good teamwork activity or you may use it as a competition.
There is fire on the other side of a river. The group needs to transfer that fire to their side of the river.

The team must transfer the flame from the lit candle to their unlit candle.
They can not cross the line.
They should lash the 3 staffs together using the rope and then tie a match to the end with the twine.
