My school banned these after some second grader got shot in the eye, but some kids still do wars with them when no one is looking. I have effectively stopped most of my friends from ever finding out how to make them, and therefore I get to sell the ones I make to them (hehe) I just bring like twenty of each type to school every day in my backpack and sell them for about 25 cents each. If you roll up a strip of aluminum foil with the paper it works WAY better
It won't work in a microwave because of the way a microwave works. The oven works by heating the whole inside of the oven to an even temperature, which will heat all the components of the plastic relatively evenly and cause it to revert to its original shape (shrink) before it was heat formed the first time. Microwaves work by causing the water molecules to gain energy essentially. It doesn't heat it evenly and won't cause the plastic to shrink at all.
Super Shinking Plastic!
