Did you know you can make your own chewing gum? I’ve made candy before, but I have never tried to make gum or gummies before. Of course, I knew that it must be possible. Most food items can be made at home. But, I was never sure exactly how to get started or what I would need. The product was provided for this post.

This is such a fun activity for the kids to do. I love that everything you need is included in the kit. And, that means that I don’t have to go hunting for some strange ingredient that I don’t end up being able to find at my local store. Plus, there is information in the kits that talks about where the ingredient comes from so the kids understand the connection between what we eat and the food we grow. For example, you learn that people in Japan and China have been eating sea vegetables like seaweed for hundreds of years. And, that the chewing gum is sticky in part from the rainforest tree sap which is harvested sustainably.
Now, this makes the kits not only fun but a great educational activity if you homeschool or just want to reinforce what the kids have learned in school. So, make sure you add them to your gift list this year!
