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.
NOTE: Starting in April, the box will include 12 cookies instead of 8, and 4 frostings plus extra sprinkles. Also, the box will contain only 1 candy craft instead of 2, but the candy craft will now make 8 treats instead of 6. Each box will still have 20 finished products to eat or share and there’s no price increase!
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.
We also received a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s theme is Butterflies and Blossoms.
Here’s a list of all the items included in the box. They also provided a list of items you’ll need from home.
This month’s projects are Pretzel Ring Flowers and Spring Cookie Decorating.
The other side features the list of all the ingredients for each recipe. My kids are excited to make the treats!
Another card shows details for the June box pick up where you can meet Gramma.
Everything in the May 2021 box!
First Project: Pretzel Ring Flowers. For the first project, the box provided melting chocolates, M&Ms, and pretzel rings. The first step is to melt the chocolates in the microwave, which requires an adult’s help.
The next step is to lay the pretzel rings on a piece of parchment and fill the inside with melted chocolate. Then, put a few M&Ms on top while the chocolate is still soft!
Let it cool down and you’re all set!
Here are the finished products. They’re so nice and colorful!
Second Project: Spring Cookie Decorating. My kids love this cookie decorating project and they always look forward to it! Aside from the cookies, the box provided colorful sprinkles, colored sugar, and frosting.
This month’s cookies are spring-themed. They included flower-shaped and butterfly-shaped cookies, which are so cute!
My kids were really excited so they went ahead and put frosting on the cookies, then added candy sprinkles.
Even my youngest designed her own cookies!
You can also use a toothpick to create more precise designs.
My kids took a few extra M&Ms from the first project and used them to decorate some cookies.
Here are the finished cookie designs. My kids had a blast creating them!
Some of my kids’ creations had colored sugar on them as well.
What a great way to unleash creativity!
After making the projects, it’s now time to munch on the finished products!
Here’s a final look at all the sweet, spring-themed projects for this month!
My kids had a great time making the spring-themed edible crafts from this month’s Gramma In A Box! One is about making pretzel flower rings, while the other involved decorating cookies. Everything needed for the project is already in the box, so it’s really hassle-free. My kids were satisfied about the finished products and they also shared the the treats after. This box makes such a good bonding experience for siblings or for the whole family. The projects are always easy to make and they always turn out yummy!
