What you'll need to make the edible sand:

– Cereal (we used Cheerios)
– A food processor (you can use any type of blender you have – even a magic bullet could work!)
– A bin 

Step 1 – Grab some cereal!  Any cereal can do but keep in mind – the higher the sugar amount, the more sticky it will be!   Depending on the size of your bin – you may need a full box or more.

Step 2 – Grind the cereal until it’s very fine.  Here we used a small food processor/chopper.  

Step 3 – Pour the edible sand in a clean bin for your child to play!  Add some toys they enjoy, some kitchen tools & accessories.
