This is a recipe for home made play dough. It's ideal for toddlers aged 2 1/2 or 3 to have fun with. It's not for eating though.

I make this houmous all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier than shop-bought without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the chillies! Serve with tortilla crisps, pitta triangles or fresh vegetables. Add more of the reserved chickpea liquid for a smoother dip.
