Tennis Ball Grenade

Introduction: Tennis Ball Grenade

A really awesome grenade using just matches and a tennis ball. *DISCLAIMER* I am in no way responsible with what you do with this knowledge, this is for instructional purposes only. Neither I or instructables.com is liable for any injuries sustained while doing this. (Besides, if you mess this up, you're pretty stupid.) This is in no way my own idea, and sorry for the lack of pictures.

Step 1: Materials: What You Will Need

*DISCLAIMER* I am in no way responsible with what you do with this knowledge, this is for instructional purposes only. Neither I or instructables.com is liable for any injuries sustained while doing this. (Besides, if you mess this up, you're pretty stupid.)

For this project, you will need:
1. A tennis ball
2. A sharp knife
3. Scissors
4. A box or two of Strike-Anywhere Matches(This might be the hardest thing to find)
This shouldn't cost too much. On to the next step!

Step 2: Make the Cuts

Using the knife, make a slit, not a hole about an inch or an inch and a half in the tennis ball. After that, cut the heads off of about 100 Strike anywhere matches, keep the box oput, you may need more.

Step 3: Be Careful!

Take the heads and pour them into the slit, without jarring them too hard, pack them in until they can fit no more.

Step 4: KABOOM!

Throw this as hard as you can at a hard surface AWAY from you. The matches will light each other, but will have no oxygen to burn, causing an explosion. This might work in some of the tennis ball mortars, if it doesn't hit them too hard, otherwise this might blow up the tube in your mortar launcher. Have fun and be Safe!
