Gramma in a Box is a monthly subscription for kids (from a real Grandma!) that sends homemade cookies with frosting and sprinkles along with two easy candy crafts to make at least 15-20 edible treats. A single box is $22 but if you purchase a 3 month, 6-month, or 12-month pre-paid option you can save 10%.
DEAL: Get $5 off when you signup for a 3 month or longer plan! Use coupon code 5OFF.
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 box includes a 20% off coupon for December 2020 plus all of 2021 boxes.
We also received a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s theme is Thanksgiving 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 Acorn Kisses, Goofy Turkey Buddies, and Fall Cookies.
Each of the cards has step by step instructions with a few images.
The other side of the card contains the list of all the ingredients for each of the recipes, and they even featured the potential allergens.
Everything in our November 2020 box!
The ingredients look really tasty, you have to remind the kids that there should be no snacking on the craft supplies!
First Project: Acorn Kisses. For the first project, the box provided melting chocolate, mini vanilla wafers, chocolate chips, and Hershey’s Kisses.
Like in the past boxes, the first thing to do is to melt the chocolates on the microwave oven for a few minutes, transfer them to the bowl, and let them cool down for a few minutes. Once it’s cool enough, my kids started putting a blob of melted chocolate on both sides of the wafers.
Next, my son put the chocolate chips and chocolate kisses on both sides of the wafer. He put enough pressure to make them stick well on the wafer.
He repeated the same procedure for the rest of the wafers!
Lastly, put the acorn kisses aside for at least 5 more minutes to dry. Once it’s dry enough, then it’s time to enjoy and munch on it!
Second Project: Goofy Turkey Buddies. For the second project, my kids used the excess melted chocolate from the first project, plus the pretzel rods, candy corn, sprinkles, candy eyes, and sunflower seeds from the box.
My son dipped one end of the pretzel rod onto the melted chocolate, then arranged the candy corns, candy eyes, and sunflower seeds to form the turkey’s head.
Lastly, he put the finished pretzel rods on the wax paper and let the chocolate dry!
Now, the treats are ready to be served!
These treats don’t just look yummy, but it tastes really good too. My kids love it so much!
Third Project: Fall Cookies. The materials for the final project include paper wax, assorted sanding sugar, fall jimmies, sprinkles, assorted themed cookies, and assorted frosting colors.
My youngest loves designing cookies! She chose the apricot-shaped cookie this time and topped it with the brown frosting.
My older son also designed his own cookies and he chose the orange-colored frosting.
After putting frosting, they started sprinkling the colorful candies on top!
You can also mix and match the frostings, just like what my younger son did for this cookie!
My eldest even used a toothpick to design small details for her cookies.
To add accent and design to your Fall cookies, you can also shower them with colorful jimmies and sanding sugar on top.
Check out all the scrumptious fall cookies my kids made!
My kids really did a great job designing these cookies!
Here’s a Thanksgiving turkey-themed cookie, and it’s so yummy!
Loving the fall colors of these edible crafts!
It’s really fun to celebrate Thanksgiving and to end the fall season with Gramma In A Box! This month, my kids received another great set of edible crafts with complete instructions and materials. My kids loved all the activities, but their favorite is decorating the cookies with frostings and sprinkles. Aside from making the crafts, my kids also enjoy munching on the treats after the activities. If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to keep kids busy and creative, this subscription is a great choice!
