so this is a paintball grenade that I made out of a sling shot sling. Make this outside because sometimes paint will spray EVERYWHERE. this is my first instructable, so no haters in the comments!

take the latex tubing off of the leather pouch. cut off the ends (if they have holes) cut the tubing in half, if you think the tube is long enough to make two grenades.

tie a knot at one end of the tube. make sure this is really tight, so paint doesn`t leak out. try making it a double knot, just to be safe. tie some fishing line at this end, about 2 inches longer than the tubing. tie the other end to the washer. set this aside.

to make your paint, I took regular craft paint and mixed with water in an old cup.

now, take the syringe and fill it with paint. try doing this with one hand, because you will have to do this later if you don't have help at hand. stick the syringe into the open end of the tube. squeeze the paint into the tube. if the paint leaks out the end with the syringe, fold the tube over on itself and try again.

Step 6:

now refill the syringe while holding the end of the tube shut. unless you have some one with you, you have to fill the syringe with one hand. push the syringe into the tube and squeeze the paint in again. repeat this until you are satisfied with its size, but remember to leave about an inch, inch and a half of tubing at the end.

This is cool but i would make it so you hold onto the pin and throw you would get more distance and spin
