The Mom Behind It
Elle Anna Christine is a mom living in Illinois. She recently shared on her TikTok about her brilliant idea of making this edible sand for her baby.
She also went and got a container to put the sand in along with some beach toys to make it a real-life sandpit for her baby.
That way, the babies can explore sand and have fun, all the while being safe. Parents do not have to worry about their children eating real sand, as it is simply Cheerios.
I know some might be thinking, “what will happen when my baby goes to the real beach and tries to eat the sand?” They probably will, my baby tried once too. However, they will quickly understand that this sand is different!
For Elle, there are no beaches nearby, so she didn’t have to worry about that happening. However, if you are worried, simply find another sensory play activity to entertain your child.
For those who don’t have a beach nearby, this idea is genius! Make some edible sand for your baby today and watch them be entertained for hours.
