How to Make Paper Bombs

How to Make Paper Bombs. If your summer is too quiet, why not make a big bang with a paper bomb? All you need is a piece of paper, some walls--and mayhem reigns. REad on, and bombs away!

Take a piece of printer paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Press down firmly on the fold, making a good crease.

Fold the paper in half again lengthwise and press down firmly to make another good crease.


Unfold the paper until it's flat, then fold it in quarters by folding it over and over until the paper is now one long, narrow rectangle. Press down firmly to make this long, narrow rectangle as flat as you can.


Turn back one corner on the bottom of the long rectangle as you make a paper bomb. Open the top of the of the rectangle, and insert the bottom inside.


Keep on slipping the bottom in farther and farther until the rectangle is a third the size. Make a crease in the top of this smaller rectangle as well as at the bottom.


Wet one side of the rectangle, and make a small hole. Blow into this hole until it's inflated. Bombs away!
