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.
This month’s box includes a promotional card.
Featured at the back of the card are some photos of previous month’s projects!
We also received a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s theme is Holiday Treats.
Featured at the back is the list of all the items included inside the box. They also provided a list of items you’ll need from home.
Every month, 3 projects are included in the box. This month, we have the California Snowman Pops, Holiday Wreath, and Winter Wonderland Cookies.
The other side of the card features the list of all the ingredients for each recipe.
Everything in the December 2020 box!
First Project: California Snowman Pops. For this project, the box provided melting chocolate, mini-pretzels, candy eyes, fondant, mini M&M’s, and peanut butter cups.
The first step is to put the chocolate discs in a microwave-safe bowl and put it in the microwave to melt. It took around approximately 20 seconds for the chocolate to be smooth. When it was done, my kids laid out wax paper on our table and started putting the melted chocolate on it.
After putting a dollop of chocolate, they spread it using the back of a spoon and put the popsicle stick in the middle. Then, it was time to decorate! My kids used the peanut butter cups for the snowman’s hat, pretzel sticks for the arms, M&M’s for the buttons, and fondant for the eyes and nose.
Lastly, wait for 5 minutes before transferring the treats to another container.
My kids’ California Snowman Pops turned out great. The treats really looked like they were melted snowmen! Too funny!
Second Project: Holiday Wreath. The next project is about making an edible wreath! The box provided corn flakes, pretzel rings, green sprinkles, red hots, and green chocolate discs. My kids also used the remaining melted chocolate from the first project.
For this project, we melted the green chocolate discs and mixed them with the white melted chocolate from the previous project. Then, my kids poured the chocolate on the corn flakes and put them on top of the pretzel rings.
For the finishing touches, my kids added the sprinkles and candies on top!
These treats are crunchy and chocolatey!
Third Project: Winter Wonderland Cookies. Here’s my kids’ most awaited part, decorating cookies! This time, it’s Christmas-themed, as the box provided red and green frosting and sprinkles. The cookies are also shaped like popular Christmas objects such as Christmas trees and snowmen.
The first step is to put their preferred frosting on the cookies. My eldest carefully put the green frosting on the Christmas tree-shaped cookie.
Here, my older son is putting white frosting on his star-shaped cookie.
My youngest daughter also decorated her own cookies and she chose the red frosting.
My younger son got creative and put candy eyes on the snowman-shaped cookie!
Here’s the final product! The cookies look festive!
These don’t just look nice, they also taste delicious!
Decorating cookies is a great way to help kids get creative.
Here’s a final look at all the edible projects my kids made this month!
This month’s Gramma In A Box put my kids in a holiday mood! The Christmas-themed edible crafts are all easy to make, and the final products all looked and tasted lovely. As always, my kids’ favorite is decorating the cookies but they also enjoyed making the wreath using corn flakes and the chocolate pops that look like melted snowmen. For those looking for fun crafts for kids, this subscription box is a good choice. Materials and instructions are provided so you don’t have to go to a store just to get supplies and you can start as soon as the box arrives! And we sort of have to – the kids clamor for it as soon as they see it! Also, after making all the projects, you’ll have yummy snacks to enjoy! This box is a fantastic way to create holiday memories without all the planning!
