Rub the gum area with ice cubes in a plastic baggie. Should harden enough to flake off with your fingernails. Use a wet rag to clean up flakes.

Been there, done that! I was ready to wring my son's neck. Then I found a tip online saying to use a dryer fabric softener sheet. I couldn't believe how well it works. Use it dry and just rub. It also works great on the sticky soap gunk that builds up around the edge of the washing machine.
