Not everyone has the luxury of a backyard to house a sandbox. Thankfully, a smart mom has come to the rescue and discovered that edible sand can be made with Cheerios. Yes, it is the most delicious sandbox ever.

TikTok user @elleannachristina posted a hack for DIY sand to her account, and all parents need is a blender and some Cheerios. All the mom does is place a handful of the heart-healthy cereal into a blender, grind until smooth, and dump into a deep dish with a few toys for her kid to play with. Genius.
