The other day we bought a science kit to make gum. We had lots of fun and made a really big mess. I did the messy part, and then the kids streched and kneaded the gum for 15 minutes so the gums elasticity stayed in place as you chewed it. The longer you do that the better the gum was. I found that it was good gum. but the flavors didn't last at all. So I think we will leave the gum making up to the professionals :).
