Calling all parents! Listen, we all ate sand as a kid. This is just an indisputable fact. But you can make edible, safe sand for your kiddos so they can live out this universal childhood pastime!

Plus, this is a great sensory play technique to help your kids get used to different surfaces and textures.

Definitely use this hack if you like fresh veggies. Get some fresh green onions from Trader Joe’s or your local produce store and put the roots in water -- soon enough, you’ll have your own green onion plants! This is a great way to propagate all sorts of plants, not just green onions. You can also do this with herbs, like parsley or thyme. So smart!
