This is my first Instructable, and I'm making it for the Chemical Reaction Weekly Challenge. These bombs are fun and easy to make, and even funner to use.

Also, I am not responsible if you blow it up anywhere you shouldn't i.e. Around people, pets, public buildings, ect. THIS PROJECT CAN BE DANGEROUS! It can also be super fun, but be careful. Good luck, and have fun!

Put the tube of baking soda in and screw the cap on as quickly as possible.

Step 6: Watch it Explode!

Once you have screwed the cap on tight, get out of there and watch it blow! You can wait a few minutes, or if you are impatient like me, you can throw it in the air repeatedly until it explodes.

Step 7: Explosion!
