I am very lucky in that all of my children love to be creative. Since birth my children have seemed to be able to find creativity in nearly everything that they do and as a mother that makes me smile from ear to ear. I love seeing my children draw, paint, sculpt (with Play Doh of course), build, and plan and enjoy doing it every step of the way. I try to keep the opportunity to be creative in all of the activities I choose for my kids and they always succeed in making the most out of every opportunity.
I love products that give children a chance to learn while also being creative and if there’s a chance for them to creatively make something they can eat they are all for it! I was recently introduced to Verve and Glee Gum, a company who makes creativity and learning fun and yummy! Glee Gum is a company who offers all natural chewing gum and educational kits for children. As a parent I really appreciate incorporating the fun aspect of these kits (what child wouldn’t want to make his own candy) with the educational aspect (this is a great chance for us moms and dads to teach our children about science and even math). Glee Gum comes in a variety of fun flavors: Tangerine, Triple Berry, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Bubblegum, and Spearmint. Glee Gum features all natural ingredients and a unique gum base (chicle). Glee Gum doesn’t contain preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners! Glee Gum offers 3 different Make Your Own kits; Make Your Own Chewing Gum (their original and still most popular), Make Your Own Gummies, and Make Your Own Chocolate. Each kit comes complete with step-by-step instructions and ingredients. We received the Make Your Own Gummies kit from Glee Gum. As soon as I announced that we were going to make the gummies my children were in the kitchen emptying the contents of the kit onto the island in the kitchen. Making the gummies was quite an experience as the ingredients featured items that my children had never seen before (seaweed anyone lol) but it was a great FUN learning experience for all of us!
You can purchase all of the items mentioned above online at gleegum.com!
As I mentioned before Verve, Inc. (the company who makes Glee Gum) offers 3 different Make Your Own kits…how would you like to win one? (Details below)

3 Extra Entries Each!
***Clarification!!! It was brought to my attention that this part of the Extra Entry options is a bit confusing so I want to clear up any doubt. For Tweeting (which you can do daily, up to 3 times) you get 3 extra entries each time you Tweet. So if you Tweet tomorrow only once that is 3 extra entries…or if you Tweet tomorrow all three times that is 9 extra entries.
For Facebook you can only share once daily, but that one time is worth 3 extra entries as well. I hope I made it a little easier to understand…if you still have questions please feel free to email me @ a_proffitt79(at)yahoo(dot)com!***
