Just watched a segment on FOX News - which sent the following message

DO NOT make any type of fireworks at home

Only looked at first experiment on here which was "Sparkles" FOX said Sparklers were one of the more dangerous, with the possibility of pieces of wire flying around (I note that the first item to create a "homemade" sparkler is pieces of wire) Another danger is sparks causing other Sparklers to explode. (I note your instructions say "Store sparklers away from heat or flame, and protected from high humidity."

I did not read your other "fun fireworks" to make. Will take FOX's advice and watch firework shows put on by the professionals - but sometmes even they can go awry, such as in Colorado last evening.
