Safety precaution:
Please exercise safety precautions such as lighting the bucket under a controlled area such as a fume hood without any other flammable materials in the area. The bucket was lit outside a fume hood for the video purpose only.

Using lycopodium and starch inside a 4L plastic ice cream bucket, air is blown into the tube to see the reaction.

Materials:
4L Plastic bucket
Plastic tube
Corn starch
Lycopodium (can be used without)

2. Have a candle, or two or three (used in the video) and make sure the candles are near the back of the bucket.
3. Cover
