The experiments we did, in order of appearance.

Smoke bomb
Equal parts by volume sugar and potassium nitrate. Heated on a low heat until brown and liquid. There about a million videos on how to make this around YouTube.

Fake blood
The fake blood was made by reacting Potassium thiocyanate (on arm) with a solution of iron(II)sulphate and hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide is to turn the iron(II) to iron(III). Warning this may irritate skin, I do it because I am mostly mad. See nerd rages video on the stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T_qVa...

Copper (II) Chloride and Copper (II) Chloride and Foil
This was made by reacting copper oxide with hydrochloric acid. The blue flame comes from the fact that there is a small amount of copper in the stream of hydrogen gas given off.

Hydrogen Gas
The H2 gas was made with magnesium and vinegar (ethanoic acid 5% conc). The cork shot off in a dazzling show of moronicness on my part. Dont do that.
