Bored Baby in Lockdown?
Many parents are trying to keep their kids busy while under lockdown, but not every mom is like one TikTok user, who shared how she used a blender and Cheerios to create a baby friendly "sandpit" for her toddler.
Blending Cheerios into dust, the mother then added beach toys to a tray.
The dusted-up Cheerios look just like the real thing, except they're edible, unlike sand -- making it perfect for her baby daughter, who demonstrated, like like most babies, she puts everything in her mouth.
The video has been viewed on the video platform more than 365,000 times, and attracted comments calling this anonymous mom a "genius."
Another commented, "Like… where was this idea when my kids were babies?! I failed."
When one naysayer asked whether this could encourage her daughter to someday eat sand at an actual beach, the mom replied, "I was scared of that too but I live in Illinois so no sand around sadly."
