People everywhere are finding themselves at home with little to do after months on stay home orders. Kids especially are suffering. Sometimes it takes a little creativity to come up with constructive ways to occupy them but it’s much needed! Enter Gramma in a Box. This fun subscription box contains everything needed to make two candy crafts plus a set for cookie decorating! Kids get creative in the kitchen and have some fun, sweet treats to show for their efforts!
Each month comes with a different theme. All supplies are included for just $20 which is a great value! If you had to purchase the supplies separately for each project you’d spend a LOT more than that, not to mention the time it would take to organize and purchase it all from different places! This month’s theme was Butterflies and Blossoms.
The first project was Pretzel Butterflies. These were made using two different shapes of pretzels and some melting chocolate to hold them together. Sprinkles were added for more flair. Each project comes with step by step directions plus tips from “Gramma”. Make sure to save half of the melting chocolate from the first project because you’ll need it for the second project.
The second project was Marshmallow Flower Pops. This used the leftover melting chocolate and some colored mini marshmallows. The melting chocolate holds everything together on a stick to make them into adorable little “pops”!
Last but not least is the cookie decorating project. This one is always the favorite with my kids. You get several different shapes of cookies, 3 colors of frosting and a variety of sprinkles, candies and/or colored sugar to decorate them! Gramma Terry posts little videos to her social media accounts and demonstrates different decorating techniques that my kids love to try.
