First off - I don't want to do this IRL. As cool as explosions are, I play video games for a reason. This is purely theoretical, just some research for a LARP I go to where my character is a bit of a... "demolitions enthusiast" and it's getting to the point where I need some knowledge that google isn't being very helpful with.

So, how would I go about making this? Some things explode and some don't, obviously, but what would I need to put together in a tin can to make it go boom (enough of a boom to theoretically kill zombies)? Working specifically with limited supplies and only chemicals available are ones found in household things (so like, I dunno, engine coolant... that sort of thing). I don't need a specific tutorial, just what things I could put together which would work and wouldn't be too unstable or be likely to explode randomly haha. And also, if the "recipe", I suppose, would change based on what shrapnel would be put inside the can (so shredded metal inside or nails stuck into the can etc.).

Yeah, any help/advice is greatly appreciated (or if I've put this on the wrong board let me know and I'll move it to somewhere better suited!).

Giving instructions on how to MacGyver an explosive-device is a no-no here.
