An easy recipe for school lunches or after school snacking!
Ryley loves gum. If she could, she would chew it all day long. My mom keeps a pretty good stash just for her.
Avery, well, he doesn’t quite get the concept of gum yet.
He swallows it.
Or it ends up on the floor for me to step in.
Once I had to cut it out of the carpet.
Needless to say, he doesn’t get gum very often.
Ryley has been learning to blow a bubble. Did you know that blowing a bubble is hard to teach?!
I’ve taught her to use the potty, make her own peanut butter and jelly and use the Netflix remote.
But we have yet to master blowing bubbles.
When the new Juicy Fruit bubble gum came to the house, we were both excited.
Ryley was because she loves gum and momma was because she might be able to teach her to blow a bubble.
We grabbed some of the strawberry flavor and started working on bubbles.
The video below shows our process with bubble blowing.
How funny is that?
Ryley is holding a rollie pollie in one hand.
Avery was whining because he dropped a whole plate of scrambled eggs.
We still have a few bubble blowing sessions before we get there. But, the strawberry Juicy Fruit is deee-licious. So that helps.
Inspired by the strawberry flavor, we made strawberry fruit leather. Its perfect for back to school lunches, snacking after school or for a late night sweet tooth.
Avery was all about them. He snatched up a piece while I was trying to photograph it.
Fruit leather is to Avery as bubble gum is to Ryley.

I haven’t had Juicy Fruit gum since I was a kid! I can’t blame Ryley one bit. This fruit leather is perfect for back to school and love how really simple it is!
I hadn’t had it in a long time either so I was excited about the strawberry flavor!

I love the look Ryley gives you when you’re explaining how to start the bubble. Best of luck teaching her how to blow a bubble! Thanks for the fruit leather recipe. Would the same process work for peach or pear leathers too? Just wondering. Thanks for the post!
Yup! Any fruit will work. Just process it and cook it! Hope yall enjoy it Deborah 🙂
