How about a birdhouse made of stacked sticks of dynamite. Lay the dynamite like "logs". The chimney would have a lit fuse coming out of it.
Since you are the Panthers put jungle greenery around the sides of the float.Up the back, have vines on thin poles and jungle floral beauty mixed with trees that are small. Fake dynamite will be placed at a fair distance from each other. Since your intention is to win the game, place strong wire into the end of the dynamite and push right through to the base so it is blasting about one to one and one and one half feet in the air. It will need sparkles on it to show the cardinals blasting up in the air! A beautiful win!
it is so easy to come up with ideas and not so easy to put them to practical use. float making is hard work. i've helped to a few for our town parades and they aren't as easy as people think.
that said.....you've seen the old tom and jerry cartoons where tom is trying to blow up jerry.....why not expand on that theme and tom(panthers) can blow up jerry (cardinal) and you could have a lot of red stuff flying around like he'd blown off the feathers.
or... a panther with a cardinal in its mouth ready to drop it in a bucket of dynomite.
How about sticks of dynamite with the cardinal strapped to them or to the top of them and the panther lighting the fuse
or cardinal "parts" scatter around and the remnants of the blow up dynamyte (fire, smoke, KABOOM sign, team members or cheerleaders in tattered uniforms with grimy faces)
