Now your grenade is finished all you have to do is make the circles that explode the grenade.

Step 9: Firing rings

Get the wire and use some pliers to snip the wire so it is around 9cm and make it in to a cirle with a diameter (width) of around 1.2cm - 1.3cm. Do this a few times as unless you tie the rings to the grenade they are very easy to lose!!!!

Step 10: Loading and Firing

Take the top and bottom off the grenade to expose the firing rods, then push all of the rods into the middle like in the 4th and 5th pictures. Then all you have to do is put the green rods in the barrels and THROW!!! The impact of the grenade hitting the floor or the wall will make the grenade explode and fire green rods everywhere!!!!
