Sand is such a fun thing in the summer, you can build castles in it, make race tracks and race cars in it, you name it! But how about eating it?

Now, normally, we would not encourage you to give you kids sand to eat, but you will all love this fun and tasty summer time snack! Just maybe make sure your kiddos know that this is a special kind of sand. 😃 Buy some cute sand buckets that you only use for this recipe, not to play outside with, to make it an even more adorable treat!


  • 1 pkg Vanilla wafers

  • 4 Oreos

  • ¼ cup Butter

  • 8 oz Cream cheese

  • ⅔ cup Powdered sugar

  • 12 oz Cool whip

  • 2 packages French vanilla pudding mix

  • 2 ¾ cups Milk

  • Some cute little sand buckets or cups


  • Start off by crushing up the Oreos and Vanilla Wafers; if you have a food processor we recommended using it.

  • In a bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar together.

  • In a different bowl, mix the instant pudding with the milk. Then add the pudding mixture into the cream cheese mixture.

  • Gently fold in the cool whip.

  • Layer the buckets (or cups) with the pudding layer first, followed by the sand layer (your cookies).

  • Repeat your layering, ending with the layer of sand.
