The kit shows up bundled neatly together under some cute red polka dots tissue.
It was also secured using a Gramma in a Box sticker.
Most of the items came in separate plastic containers.
The card has a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s box is all about Butterflies and Blossoms Cookies and Candy.
At the back is a list of all the items from the box and the items you need from home.
Every month, 3 projects are included in the box. This month, we have Pretzel Butterflies, Marshmallow Flower Pops, and Spring Cookie Decorating.
Each card includes detailed step-by-step instructions with an image of the project outcome.
Featured on the other side of the card is the list of all the ingredients for each recipe.
This is the box upon opening! You just have to remind the kids that there should be no snacking on the craft supplies!
Everything in our May 2020 box!
First Project: Pretzel Butterflies. For the first project, we used pretzels and pretzels sticks, rainbow sprinkles, and purple melting chocolate.
We melted the chocolate in the microwave before starting with the project. Then, the kids arranged the pretzel and pretzel sticks on a flat surface to form a butterfly.
After arranging them, put a small amount of the melted chocolate in the middle of the butterfly-shaped pretzels, as it will serve as a “glue” that will stick the pretzels together.
Once done, my kids showered the butterflies with a pinch of the rainbow sprinkles on top of the melted chocolate. We waited for them to dry completely before serving!
Second Project: Marshmallow Flower Pops. For the second project, we used popsicle sticks, marshmallows, and the melted purple chocolate.
My kids placed the popsicle sticks in our working area, apart from each other. For the next step, they carefully poured the melted chocolate on one end of each stick to make the base of the treat.
Then, they put marshmallows on top of the melted chocolate and arranged them accordingly to form a petal of a flower. After letting them dry for a few minutes, our flower pops were ready to be served!
Third Project: Spring Cookie Decorating. The final project is cookie decorating! For this, they provided sugar cookies, frosting, sanding sugar, and pastel sequins. We also used the rest of the melted purple chocolate.
My kids really love decorating cookies! My youngest immediately grabbed a cookie and started squeezing frosting on top of it.
For this one, my son put the rest of the melted chocolate on one of the cookies and then showered it with some rainbow sprinkles on top.
He then grabbed another one, and this time, he put a blue and pink frosting design of top of the cookie.
Here are all of our Spring-themed cookies!
After making all the projects, we also enjoyed munching on them all!
Gramma In A Box is once again filled with fun edible projects! The ingredients are already provided, all we just need to do is follow the instructions and enjoy. Each box is also themed depending on the season or holidays, adding more excitement to the projects. My kids really loved working on each of the projects this month, especially the cookies! They were able to come up with their own designs, which is a great way to enhance their creativity. Another fun part is munching on all the finished goodies! Indeed, this is a great box for family bonding!
