Rainbow Play Dough

Rainbow Play Dough

The way I have always made play dough requires that I add the color to the whole batch while it's cooking, making it difficult to make multiple colors. But by some lucky (see the emerging Irish theme?) happy accident we managed to add the ingredients in the wrong order, which is no doubt the result of making dough with a two year old while chatting with my mother-in-law and goo-gooing at my baby! But, as that same luck would have it, I think we landed on the BEST batch of dough yet. The texture is buttery and I was able to deliver on the multiple colors request. So, without further ado...¦
