    It's against the PF Rules to allow discussions regarding how to make explosives (see the Rules link at the top of the page), so we'll be watching this thread to be sure it doesn't go there.

    Having said that, there may be other, relatively safe ways to generate the effect you want. Have you checked out magic stores and websites to see what they offer? I've also seen kids playing with "popper" things -- they were annoying, but seemed relatively safe. Also, there are some small cap-gun things that you could probably adapt to do what you want. I've seen little bomb-shaped things about 3-4cm in length that you load a standard 2mm plastic cap in (from the cap-guns that use those type of caps). You could come up with some disposable way to do the same thing.
