what's the best thing to use to make sand? I was thinking brown sugar or graham crackers. Suggestions?

If the sand will be eaten, a lot of brown sugar is pretty yucky.

I make sand by grinding up a mixture of 'Nilla Wafers and cinnamon graham crackers. It make a nice color, texture, and taste.

I ground up some little butter cookies. They are the ones with scalloped edges and a hole in the middle. (My grandmother used to get them for us and we would put our pinkie finger in the hole and eat our way around it. Those cookies have been around for a loooooooooooong time icon_lol.gif )

I actually use a combination of cinnamon graham crackers, nilla wafers, and a little bit of organic unbleached cane sugar (it gives a little bit of sparkle).
