Everything (almost!) you need to decorate cookies and make 2 candy crafts (15 to 20 finished items each month). Because the items in the box are perishable, you have to make sure to use up before a certain date that your box lists.
I also have to admit that I love the name Gramma In A Box – it instantly conjures up memories of me as a kid baking treats with my grandma!
Everything inside our Spring-themed month. 🙂
Our three projects of the month!
I personally loved how detailed the instructions were!
The flip side lists all the ingredients – so you are well aware of what’s being consumed in case of allergies etc.
You also get an information sheet that lists all the contents of your box, which again makes it super easy to follow through! 🙂
Let’s get started with some real fun now, shall we? 😉
Project #1: Marshmallow Flowers
We set out our wax paper (included in our box) on the table to begin decorating our marshmallows.
I quickly heated up the melting chocolate in the microwave and spooned and spread out a bit on the wax paper.
And off went the kiddos creating their marshmallow flower. 😀 This was a super easy decorating craft with very little mess.
We were able to make 4 marshmallow flowers, although you can potentially make at least 6 (however, thanks to my 2-year-old who just couldn’t resist on munching on those marshmallows while decorating, we could only come up with 4!). 😉
Project #2: Colorful Bird’s Nest
Another super fun craft that involved rice krispies, leftover melting chocolate (from our first project) and jelly beans!
All we had to do was mix in the rice krispies into the melting chocolate.
And the kids then scooped it up and into the muffin liners (6 included in our box).
Topped it with the jelly beans and voila – their pretty colorful bird’s nests are ready! Here they are counting their jelly beans so it kind of worked out to be an easy math lesson too. 😉
Project # 3: Spring Cookie Decorating
My 4-year-old was most thrilled about this activity as it was all about getting your hands messy with the frosting and the sprinkles. She is obsessed with anything sprinkles, ha. 🙂
We got all Spring-themed baked cookies which I thought was adorable. From egg-shaped to duckies to flowers.
Very carefully piping the frosting onto their cookies. Probably their most favorite part of the entire box!
And now for some more fun – decorating their cookies with colorful sprinkles.
This was literally a good 30-minutes, hands-on activity for the kids as they decorated all 8 cookies to their hearts’ content. 🙂
Proudly showing off her accomplishment. 🙂
Another closer look at all our goodies created single-handedly by the kids. 😉
What an amazingly fun month by Gramma In A Box! What I loved about this was that you get everything already baked in your box – which means you don’t have to bake anything! The frosting and the decor goodies were packaged very neatly and the instructions were super precise! What a perfect way for the whole family to have fun while spending quality time! Also, for a limited time, Gramma In A Box is offering a very sweet deal, so hurry and grab your May box for only $1.00 with the coupon code 19off.
