2. Put dates and raisins (any combination of the two that equals ½ cup total) into the food processor and pulse until play dough consistency.It will start to clump together when it is done.

3. Mix the two ingredients by hand until well incorporated and the consistency of stiff play dough or cookie dough. (You can do this all in the food processor also).

5. Wrap in wax paper or glass containers if you aren't giving to kids and store in fridge until ready to use.
