Step 1: What You Need

1. Different sizes of screw drivers (not too big) medium-----large
2. Something to poke the ball to get a starter hole
3. A M-88 or other large firecracker
4. A ping pong ball
5. A pair of cutting pliers
6. Flour
7. A spoon

Step 2: Hole 1

Poke a hole with the small pointy instrument of your choice.

Step 3: Hole 2

Poke a hole with the medium sized screw driver.

Step 4: Hole 3

Now poke a hole with the large screw driver.

Step 5: Trimming and Cutting

Cut the diameter of the firecracker with the cutting pliers.

Step 6: Adding Flour

Add the flour by the spoon full and when it's almost at the top, stop.

Step 7: Put in Your Firecracker

Once your flour is at the top, insert your M-88 into the ping pong ball. (Make sure it goes all the way down, and its okay for some to spill.)

Step 8: Finished

    Though it is highly unlikely it will light from a firecracker, fire is flammable when spread into the air. Just letting you know...

    how big of an explosion does it make? big enough to be a good smoke screen weapon during and airsoft war? I want to know because my friend has a homade grenade launcher that fires grenades similar to thus but with airsoft bbs instead of flour and this could be usefull.

    Hmmm....... nice idea but Mav likes big boom. I think ill try it with my m-5000 (1/2 stick of dynamite) and  BFC can full of flour and assorted shrapnel.

    Awesome!!! Load some airsoft pellets around there and fill it up with flour anyway to allow pressure to plow the shell !!!!

    If you sealed the ball with only a fuse hole and made sure the flour was kind of loose inside but still mostly full it would explode without the fireworks. It is actually possible to make week explosives using just flour or other powders.
