Lead by the emergence of 3D printing, making and building your own things is a burgeoning trend. As a result, we are seeing all kinds of kits that help facilitate amateur creators. A fun example is the build your own bubble gum kit, which lets you create mouthfuls of bubble gum in about a half an hour. Add your own flavors and colors to make gumballs, rings or sticks of gum. Inside most kits you'll find chewing gum base, confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, flavors, and a pan for softening the mixture, either in the microwave or on the stove. As a trend, you can expect to see lots more maker activities on these pages, and in your life.
