You will need: a cutting board, an orange or two, a knife, some olive oil, and a lighter (a parent is optional)

First, clear the board before you start. Then, get a knife and an orange and use the knife to cut through ONLY the skin of the orange. Next, don't peel the skin, but use your thumb to separate the edible part of the orange from the skin. The edible part of the orange isn't going to be used, so you can save it for eating later. If you do it right, the center pulp sticking out should stay on the orange peel. That pulp will be your wick or the flammable part, also take of the other side. Now put some olive oil in the orange peel, not a lot, but about half an inch to an inch. Then dip the wick or pulp in the olive oil found anywhere in your kitchen and let it sit there for a while to give the olive oil a chance to settle. Meanwhile, you can cut a small hole in the other orange peel so the candle won't burn out when you put it on top. While waiting, you can read a page or two in that book you've wanted to finish! After several minutes, light the wick on fire and you've got a candle! Be patient though, it might take a while. You can leave it like that or you can put the orange top on. In the dark, it preferebly looks brighter with the top on.
