I love the idea of favors that are inexpensive and yet useful and appreciated. So we decided to make some homemade Gak while we waited for our cupcakes to come out of the oven.
We used this recipe and I'm not sure what we did wrong but it was a huge FAIL. It hardened so quickly the starch wouldn't mix in with the glue any longer and all I had was like stiff gum floating in blue water.
So we made some play dough instead.
There were some GREAT other ideas mentioned on facebook and instagram as well. I'd love to hear some of your favorite party favor ideas!
