One box of matches and some tin foil.
Take one match, wrap a small amount of tin foil around the match head.

Balance on edge of table with tin foil end hanging out in space.

Light a second match and hold to tin foil, wait for heat to get through tin foil and if lucky sudden explosion (or the tiniest proportions) will send match stick flying across table and off the other end.

Check match is out before it possibly sets fire to the carpet.

That's about as exciting as home science got for me.
