How to Make a Smoke Bomb

Introduction: How to Make a Smoke Bomb

Hello! Today I'll sho you how to make a cheap smoke bomb in 10 minutes.

Step 1: Supplies

For the smoke bomb, you will need:

  1. Aluminum Foil
  2. Ping-Pong Balls
  3. Something flammable (I used wood chips but anything flammable would do)
  4. A Pencil
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue

Step 2: Making the Bomb

  1. First, cut the Ping-Pong balls into a bunch of small fragments.
  2. Second, cut out a square of aluminum foil.
  3. Now place all of the Ping-Pong ball fragments in the middle of the aluminum square.
  4. Hold the pencil on top of the fragments and fold the aluminum into a ball around the pencil.
  5. Finally, put the "fuse" in place of the pencil in the bomb. Make sure the "fuse" completely touches ping-pong ball fragments. I used a small amount of glue to hold the fragments in place.


All you have to do is light the flammable bit and wait till smoke starts coming out of the opening.
