It's time for another Gramma in a Box review! Each themed Gramma in a Box contains everything you need for decorating cookies and creating 2 candy crafts. The box contains the already-baked cookies as well as pre-measured portions of all of the decorating supplies. Easy to follow instructions for each craft are included on colorful cards. The crafts are easy enough for even very young kids (with parental assistance) and it's become a monthly tradition for us.

My kids get soo excited when our Gramma in a Box shows up in the mail. Jasper recognizes it immediately and calls it "the crafts"! We were stuck inside on a dark and rainy Sunday, so it ended up being a perfect afternoon to have a little fun in the kitchen.
This month's theme was, of course, Valentine's Day!
I peeled back the tissue paper to see a fun mix of pink, red, and white goodies. If this photo was zoomed out a bit, you'd see Jasper and Shelby's little paws clinging to the side of the table I was using. They were ecstatic about getting started!
The first project in February's box was Valentine Candy Cane Hearts. This treat involved making a heart shape using two mini candy canes, filling them with melted chocolate, and decorating with sprinkles and candy hearts.
The second project was Crispy Valentine's Bites. This was a simple project mixing plain and chocolate crispy rice cereal with the remaining chocolate from the first project, placing a portion in cute cupcake papers, and decorating.
The Valentine Cookies project in this box included heart and circle scalloped sugar cookies, sprinkles, and red, pink, and white frosting.
As usual, working with the hot melted chocolate is Mama's job, but they helped me pour the wafers into the bowl, and then they got to go hog wild with the decorating after I spread the chocolate into the candy cane hearts.
They did a great job!
Then for the 2nd project, the kids helped me pour the crispy rice cereal into the remaining chocolate, and then I mixed it all together.
They each got 3 crispy chocolate clusters to decorate.
And of course, sneaking a few sprinkles here and there is part of the fun of doing Gramma in a Box!
Sprinkles in their hair, sprinkles on the counter, sprinkles stuck to their hands, and sprinkles on the floor. Yeah, I think they had fun.
As always, we capped off this box by decorating the cookies with sprinkles, candy hearts, and anything that was left over from the two previous projects.
Now we are all ready for Valentine's Day!
We were left with a full plate of adorable goodies and our kids were so proud of themselves for being able to create them almost all on their own. We love the sense of pride and accomplishment that this box gives our kids each month!
And from a parent's perspective, I also appreciate that prep and clean-up is a snap. Most of the containers are recyclable and I just pack the plastic items back into the box and toss it into the recycling bin. Since my kiddos are really little, a quick sweep of the kitchen to catch errant sprinkles is required, and then after that, I'm done!
