We don’t know what it is about little kids, but for some reason they have this odd fascination with putting EVERYTHING in their mouths.

So instead of popping her kids in an actual sand pit to play, this one mum has come up with a genius hack to make EDIBLE sand! So her kiddies can pop that stuff in their mouths until their hearts are content.

Elle Anna Christine shared her little trick on TikTok, showing exactly how she creates her edible sand.

Turns out all she uses is the cereal Cheerios and grinds it up in her blender! It’s as simple as that!

She then pops the mixture in a plastic container with a few toys and bob’s your uncle! You’ve got yourself a sand pit!


The video has since gone viral, gaining over 2.6 million views and other mums have since started sharing their own videos of them DIY-ing edible sand pits for their own kids!
