While this DIY kit is technically targeted to kids, most things tykes get to do are still pretty fun for grown folks, too. Everything you need comes in this little kit, such as the sap from Sapodilla trees in Central America. It’s just $US14 and makes for a fun weekend project and you’ll even learn a little bit. It offers a short chemistry lesson, explaining how gum is made, and it tells you all about the different places the ingredients are sourced from.
It’s not hard either; literally, it’s so easy, a child can master it. With step-by-step instructions and a website to help you out incase you get lost, you’ll be blowing bubbles you cooked up yourself in no time. [Book of Joe]
