Create your own chewing gum from scratch using the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit. Prepare the gum base by heating it, and then mix in the sugar and flavorings. With this kit you make your gum from natural chicle, the sap of the Sapodilla tree that grows in the rainforests of Central America. This is the way chewing gum used to be made, before the industry switched to cheaper synthetic rubber.
This makes a great family activity for kids that is fun and educational.
