Make water balloons explode in mid-air Answered

Hello to all, This is my first post, so if I make a mistake I apologize in advance. I am looking for a way to make water balloons explode in mid-air. It must be safe (i.e. I am not going to shoot them out of the sky with some sort of projectile) and I would prefer not to utilize some form of explosive device. I would prefer something I could time and continuously reproduce. Whether it be an apparatus or a chemical reaction. It has to be safe to be done around children, environmentally friendly, in other words I don't want to cause anyone or anything harm other than the balloon itself. I would like to be able to make the balloons burst at either a specific time after launching or throwing or have them burst after reaching a certain height in the air. If I can figure out a way to this I will gladly share my whole idea. Thanks in advance.

fill the baloon as full as you can and then throw it w/ you fingers spread out when you do this it kinda shatters just as it leaves your hand and when you aim it showers the victim with water

how about something simple. a piece of fishing line, say, 20feet long. attach one end to a device on the balloon that will pierce the balloon and hold the other end. When you throw it, the tug of the string will set off the device and pierce the balloon. something like this.. or maybe something more elegant.

try spraying the balloon with wd40, and than throwing it. I used to do this as a kid to make balloons explode in the air.

I've already built something like that. I was cutting a string mid-air - that by a simple timer, that gives some current to a relay after some period of time. The relay activate another circuit that is just a good batteries connected to any type of thin wire you may found, when this circuit on, the thin wire gets hot, and suerly will make a big enough hole in your balloon to blow him up.
