use sodium chlorate weed killer and sugar mix together 3 spoons of sugar with 1 and a half spoons of sodium chlorate (must be non liquid sodium chlorate) then shake well in a tub fill a small tube 5 cm tall 2 cm wide then add a bottom card disk(top and bvottom most have caps) then drill or stab a little hole in one disk then put in fuse if you dont have one you can get some of your fuel and put it in a piece if paper 5 cm long 3 cm wide make a small fold then place fuel in fold roll it all up and twist put it in rocket motor and then light have fun.
WARNING I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT GOES WRONG THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I DID IT AND DONT BE SILLY WITH IT THIS IS NOT A TOY IT IS DANGEROUSE (ALWAYS MAKE JUST ENOUGHTH FUEL FOR PROJECT NO MORE) HAVE FUN

well Im am quite flattered by your concern but I am not actually a kid,although the wording of the question might of convinced you otherwise.
To be honest this was kind of a shot in the dark,and anyway i soon found it was actually illegal in my country (uk) to make solid rocket fuel anyway under the explosives act of 1795 (Im not making that up) and pretty much abandoned the idea and stuck with estes.

there is a type of composite that may be within your capabilities. Ammonium nitrate and 2 part urethane may a powerful castable rocket grain. The AN you can get from ice packs (instant) and the urethane from a plastics supplier (not one part urethane from the paint store) its 80-90% AN and 10-20% urethane

Sodium chlorate and sugar is a violent explosive strong enough to split logs.
You need something tamer, say flowers of sulphur and zinc dust.
Complete plans for such a rocket were in the old "Scientific American" "Amateur Scientist" collum and book in the late 1950's-early 1960's.

Try sodium chlorate weedkiller and sugar.Use the mixture in your match rockets instead of match powder.For the fuse,sodium chlorate and sugar dissolved in water and soak a piece of paper in it.Use that for your fuse.
