We switched things up a little this month with our Gramma in a Box subscription. My oldest daughter is the queen of candy crafts and cookie decorating but she has been down with pneumonia. This created an opportunity for my youngest and my oldest to spend some time bonding by doing the Gramma in a Box projects together!
What is Gramma in a Box you ask? It’s a subscription service that comes with everything you need to make 2 candy crafts plus one cookie decorating kit for just $20. It’s a pretty great deal considering the cost of the supplies to make these items plus the time it would take to gather them. We’ve been getting our monthly deliveries for about a year now and my kids still get excited when it arrives — they love it!
“Gramma Terry” started making Gramma in a Box for her grandkids who live in a different state. She’d send them the kit and they’d do the projects “together” via Skype. Now she spreads the love to anyone that wants a subscription! She comes up with themed cookies and crafts each month, puts together detailed instructions and bonus tips.
The contents of each box are always very organized. The directions are easy to follow so it’s clear which ingredients go with which project. The kit always comes with three mini tubes of frosting, more than enough to decorate the cookies which usually come with at least 2 different shaped and sized cookies plus sprinkles, colored sugar etc to decorate them with. Often the toppings are unique and not something you’d likely find in your typical grocery store.
The first project this month was Goldfish Bowls. First, melt the colored melting chocolate in the microwave. Dip the bottom portion of each marshmallow into the chocolate then the very bottom into the crushed graham crackers. Stick a goldfish cracker or two to the side of the marshmallow using the melting chocolate before it dries to hold it on. So cute!
The second project typically uses the left over melting chocolate from the first project so make sure you don’t use too much. This month the second project was Seashell Pretzels. Coat each pretzel with melting chocolate then stick on a chocolate seashell and sprinkle with white pearl sprinkles.
Last but not least is the cookie decorating. My kids never tire of this project. It’s super fun because it always comes with several different cookie shapes, three different colors of frosting and a variety of different decorations like colored sugar and sprinkles. Plus, you can get creative and use any left over supplies from the other projects. Gramma gives lots of tips for the cookie decorating and even gives video demonstrations on her social channels! My kids love trying out her techniques!
