    Unfold a small paper napkin. Remove a layer if it happens to be a two-ply napkin so that the paper is thin and weak.

    Lightly spray the napkin with water. Only use a very light mist of water, ideally from a spray bottle, or the napkin will break before you have a chance to launch your flour bomb.

    Heap a hefty pile of flour onto the center of the napkin and then gather the edges and secure with a rubber band. To get extra launching power and make a super sticky mess, consider adding an egg to the center of your flour bomb.

    • Flour is messy so launch your bombs outside.
    • Flour can be flammable, so don't prepare your bomb or throw it near open flame.
    • While it is not likely that a flour bomb could seriously damage property or harm anyone, use common sense when you launch your bomb. Don't try to hit anyone with it or throw it at breakable property.
