Fun with chemistry

I just found this box in my parents' basement.

My 7th grade science teacher let me order some chemicals from a scientific supply house. He said everything was OK as long as I didn't order sodium nitrate, since that could be used to make gunpowder. Here's what I got:
nitric acid
sulfuric acid
potassium chlorate
magnesium ribbon
sodium peroxide

I had a lot of fun with that stuff!
