This month’s Gramma in a Box didn’t arrive at an ideal time for us. My husband was out of town which meant the kids and I would practice hopping from immediately after school until bedtime. Since that left ZERO time for anything else, I did the Gramma in a Box projects myself while the kids were at school. It was super fun to experience it myself and my kids were happy for the treats I made them!
This month’s box was Valentine themed. It arrived after the holiday but why not celebrate LOVE all month long? As always, the projects were super cute!
With a Gramma in a Box Candy Crafts and Cookie Decorating Kit, Gramma does all the work so you can have all the fun. Everything you need is neatly packaged and delivered to your home so you can make two candy craft projects and cookie decorating with no baking or shopping required!
Each box is only $22 which is really an exceptional value when you consider the cost of buying all the supplies in full sizes and the time it would take to track them down! Not to mention the time it would take to bake the cookies and make the colored frosting!
The first project from the February box was “Cupid’s Arrows”. For this project you melt the melting chocolate and use it like glue to assemble pretzel sticks and candy hearts into an arrow. Dip each end of the pretzel stick into the melted chocolate and set it on top of the candy hearts as described in the directions. Then let them set. Some of the pretzels were broken but can easily be put back together using a little melting chocolate.
“Gramma” gives clearly written instructions with photos for every project and even offers extra tips! Kids can learn to follow simple directions and practice their reading while having a lot of fun in the kitchen!
The second project was Valentine Candy Cane Hearts. Set your candy canes in a heart shape on the parchment paper. You may want to use a little melting chocolate to fix them into place. Mix the rice cereal with the remaining melting chocolate from the first project and use it to fill in the hearts. Just drop a dollop in the middle of each heart and use a toothpick to spread it out so it fills the entire middle. Sprinkle with your choice of topping. A couple of my candy canes were broken but again, the melting chocolate can be used to repair them..
The cookie decorating is always a lot of fun. For this third project you always get three colors of frosting and a variety of different cookie shapes plus sprinkles, candies and/or colored sugar to decorate them! You can also use any leftover ingredients from the first two projects to really get creative! This month we got heart shaped cookies, lip shaped cookies, and the letters “X” and O” with pink, white, and red frosting. SO cute!
Although they didn’t get to make the projects themselves this month, they really enjoyed the finished projects. They look forward to the next box they’ll be able to get creative with on their own. As for me, I had a lot of fun making these treats and getting to experience Gramma in a Box from a different perspective. I can see why they enjoy it so much! It’s really satisfying creating these cute treats for the family to enjoy!
