Flying tea bag rocket – Experiment

This experiment should only be done under supervision of an adult!

A pair of scissors
Tea bag
Fire resistant surface

Take out the teabag and remove the string. Cut the both ends open and remove the tea inside. Form both ends like tubes and place it vertical at the fire resistant surface. Light the tea bag and wait for it to fly.

The heated air inside the tube causes the ash that is very light to rise up in the air since hot air is lighter than cold air. Well that’s the short explanation anyway. Discuss it more in the comments.
