Introduction: Smoke Bomb

Picture of  Smoke Bomb

Have you ever needed a good prank or a quick distraction, but had no clue what to do? Well, while I was playing around with a pingpong ball I discovered that they easily burn to ashes emitting lots of smoke. But the smoke goes every where, so I took tinfoil and rapped it around the pingpong ball and a pencil and lit it emitting smoke from one place.

Place the pingpong ball in the center of the tin foil, and begin to rap the foil around the ball but not all the way. Put the pencil on the pingpong ball and rap the rest of the foil around the pencil. Pull out the pencil. Try to make sure that it is tight so the smoke only comes out of the tube before pulling out het pencil. hold a flame under the ball until it starts smoking, then do whatever you want. You could use the same method with more balls for longer lasting smoke.

You can also use camera film instead of a ping pong ball.

A note to anyone who makes this! The smoke that this makes is toxic, which means breathing it in is dangerous. Don't go around lighting these around other people or creatures.
