{Pinned there, Done That} Homemade Jello Playdoh

I went to Pinterest to find ideas for my daughters strawberry Shortcake birthday party, I mean... who wouldn't, the resource is there why not use it?

I am not a super fan of party favors that are silly little plastic nic nacs that end up getting broken the 2nd time you play with them. So after pinning this jello playdoh recipe from from Playdoh I decided to make jello playdoh as the party favors...

... and making different "flavors" based on the characters. (you gotta stick to the theme right?)

I only made 4 different "flavors" because, well, I didn't need to make THAT much and I split each batch into 4 pieces. I used strawberry jello for Strawberry Shortcake, Blue Raspberry jello for Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Jello for Raspberry Torte, and grape jello for Plum Pudding (what? there's not plum flavored jello... and I was sticking with the color versus the flavor)

Then I went off to photoshop to make these cute labels for the top of the containers.

There we go, another pin moved to the "completed pins" board.
Woo hoo!
