Make your own gummies!

Is your winter weather gray and depressing like ours? If you are looking for some fun indoor activities with your kids, check out the make your own candy kits from the nice folks at Glee Gum.These are easy for kids to follow along, educational, and have a yummy result.

I received one Make Your Own Gummies kit to try with Amelia. She is a fruit snacks fiend - I have to limit her to two pouches per day. So when I told her we could make our own gummies for a holiday break activity, she was giddy. We did ours in the microwave, and it took about 20 minutes (including 10 mins in the fridge to cool & solidify).

The kit does not come with molds, so you can make these in any shape or size you wish. We found an object with a small circle base, and made hot pink candy dots. Lots of fun!

    Either the Gummy Kit or the Chocolate Kit would be my choice to get to make with my Grandkids, they love fruit snacks & gummy candies as much if not more than chocolate! But they LOVE to get together with me(Nana) & make anything! We decorated Christmas Sugar Cookies in Dec & last Feb we bought a kit & made our own candy necklaces & bracelets! So much fun to show them how to have fun making something together! Diane

  7. Making your own chewing gum sounds like something my kids would really enjoy!
