Gauntlets, good point.

Debbie, how do you make bubble gum?

Rebekah,
We had a kit from National Geographic. It contained some little gum base pellets that you micro-waved with powder sugar. When it softened and got sticky you mixed in Karo Syrup and flavoring. Kneaded it, rolled it out and cut it with the little cookie cutter type molds. Dusted it with powdered sugar and let it dry for 1 hr. It was fun and interesting. Don't know where you can get the gum base pellets. Debbie S
