We love messy play and having options to play with an edible messy option is always great for little ones. Today’s messy play idea is a super easy edible sand, it feels like sand, but is completely edible so you can let your little one fully investigate it. We use the sand along with stacking ups, shovels and a little bucket as it is possible to make castles and shapes out of the sand.
So, how do you make it? It is really easy – just blend rich tea biscuits! Check the ingredients for allergies as there are some options that are free from dairy if that is a consideration. The sugar in the biscuits make the sand mouldable and it gives it a gritty texture.
We have also made the sand with digestives, custard creams and ginger biscuits and they have all worked well.
Have lots of fun, do cover flooring (we use a tarpaulin) and make sure as always that your little one is in eye sight and arms reach.
