For starters I have two kids who refuse to share anything. One boy who refuses to touch anything pink, and a girl who refuses to touch anything blue. So I knew we would never be able to reach a compromise on the color of the dough. So I thought I would just make two batches and then realized I didn't have two cups of salt. So now what, okay I would make one batch and then divide it, and then color it. This way I could have one blue and one pink and everybody would be happy! I think this was a very important direction to follow: Add the color to the water, which now I must add could be a really critical step if you don't want your hands to turn the color of the dough your mixing. We ended up with both batches turning out great and even though my hands look like pink and blue Easter eggs, nobody cried and it worked so that's what I call a success!
