Ever wondered how to make gunpowder? Well here is the 'how-to!' Firstly you will need the following ingredients: potassium nitrate; carbon; sulfur; scale; spoons; and something to mix it all in. Add all the ingredients together in the following proportions: potassium nitrate, 74%; carbon, 14%; and sulfur, 12%. Next mix it all together in a stirring motion, while breaking down clumps to form a cohesive powder. Now you should have made some explosive gunpowder, which can be experimented (or played) with, safely of course. Just make sure you are not near any open flames while you are mixing the ingredients!
