This week we want you to celebrate Bubble Gum Day by creating the tasty treat, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #BubbleGum.

Who would have thought, it's actually Bubblegum Day! It began in 2006, when author Ruth Spiro, decided that the world needed a day focused around education, philanthropy, and best of all bubble gum. Just for clarity, Bubble gum is a type of chewing gum, designed to be inflated out of the mouth as a bubble. To celebrate, your task is to create a project with bubble gum as the main subject. There are thousands of different types, so don't hold back. Your gum can be in original form, in packaging, inflated like a balloon, or even stuck under a seat.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
