I'd suggest against it, especially since you have a male hedgie. Sand can get in eyes and private parts and cause irritations or problems, and this could be a big problem with the penile sheath with a male.

You can use polished stones too- large-ish ones. Brillo loves to push the rocks around, especially when there are hidden mealies!

If you take the large igloo at a store, flip it over and fill with fleece strips, it'll entertain them for hours.
