Bubble Gum Day

Also known as

  • Food & Drink



Bubble Gum Day is a fun and engaging holiday celebrated on the first Friday of February each year. The day is dedicated to the sweet treat that has been a favorite of children and adults alike for over a century - Bubble Gum!

Bubble Gum Day was established by children's book author Ruth Spiro, who wanted to create a day for kids to have fun at school while also learning about charity. Schools participating in Bubble Gum Day allow students to chew bubble gum in class, typically in exchange for a small donation. The collected funds are then used to support school activities or donated to a charity.

How to Observe Bubble Gum Day

Celebrating Bubble Gum Day can be a blast! Here are some activities that can make the day more enjoyable:

  • Bubble Gum Blowing Contest: Organize a contest to see who can blow the biggest bubble. This can be a fun and exciting competition for kids and adults alike.
  • Bubble Gum Art: Encourage creativity by using bubble gum wrappers or chewed gum to create unique pieces of art.
  • Bubble Gum Science: Explore the science behind bubble gum. How does it work? Why does it stretch? This can be a great opportunity to learn while having fun.
  • Bubble Gum History: Discuss the history of bubble gum. Who invented it? How has it changed over the years?

Remember, Bubble Gum Day is not just about chewing gum and having fun, it's also about giving back to the community and learning. So, let's get ready to 'chews' some fun!
