Fun and Unique

  • Match Rockets
    You've shucked all your covers and now have bunches of extra matchsticks. Why not make them into little matchstick rockets?  It's fun and makes an educational science project demonstrating the physics of propulsion. Just remember "safety first".
  • Matchstick Marvels Museum
    This museum displays incredible works of sculpture art constructed entirely of wooden matchsticks. Some works contain over a half million matchsticks.
