Do you have special family traditions? Do you have special traditions that your family does outside of the holidays? Sadly, I don’t think many families do have traditions except for those that involve holiday such as Christmas. Hanukkah, Easter or Thanksgiving.
I will admit that my family doesn’t have any traditions outside of the holidays either.
If you are looking to start some new family traditions, especially with your child or grandchild, might I recommend Gramma in a Box.
There are so many wonderful monthly subscription boxes available these days. Books, toys, games, beauty, collectibles… there is a subscription box for just about anything. Even dogs and cats have their own subscription boxes.
Gramma in a Box is a monthly subscription box that provides you with what you need to make yummy treats together with your child/grandchild.
Each month you will receive a fun filled box of treats to make. Your box includes almost everything you need to make and decorate up to 20 cookie and candy treats, including fresh homemade cookies, a variety of sprinkles and colored frosting, two easy candy crafts, detailed instruction sheet with photos, as well as decorating ideas. Some months will also include holiday theme candy and cookies, such as the Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day photos below. This will be a fun memory maker for children who do not live near their Gramma, or as a great activity for when Gramma visits! So fun and easy that even Grandpa will enjoy helping out!
Can you image how excited a child would be if they received one of the Gramma in a Box boxes? They would be overjoyed! Not only because the box contains delicious goodies, but also because he/she can spend quality time with gramma, making wonderful memories together that will last a lifetime.
I reviewed one of the Gramma in a Box boxes a while back. The one I received was Easter themed. You can read that review here – Enjoy some sweet treats with your family with Gramma in a Box.
I received another box recently. This time the box had a fall/Thanksgiving theme.
Inside the box were the supplies needed to make Fall Cookies, Turkey Buddies and Harvest Bark, so name a few.
Inside Gramma in a Box boxes you’ll find pre-made cookies to decorate based on the box’s theme. There is little to no baking involved. That is a good thing for people like me who can’t bake to save their life. Seriously… I am a horrible baker. I mess up pre-made cookies! Besides, the best part about making cookies is the decorating and eating anyway.
The most you need to do for the most part is microwave ingredients to melt them. That is easy enough to do. Even a child can do that.
I WISH I was able to do a special activity with my great-grandmother, as well as my grandmother (my paternal grandmother raised me since I was a toddler). Both of these amazing women are long gone. I wish I could go back in time. If I knew then what I know now, I would have spent every possible moment with them. I miss them both terribly.
You do not need to be a Grandmother (or Grandfather) to utilize this box with a child. Parents, aunts, uncles, siblings… just about anyone can enjoy creating delicious treats with Gramma in a Box.
For the life of me I cannot find the photos of the creations I made with this month’s box. Ugh!
My favorite treat with this month’s box was the cute turkeys made out of Ritz-like crackers and candy corn. Sweet chocolate and salty crackers together are a yummy combination. Mmm!
The Harvest Bark was also delicious. And it was so easy to put together. It’s a recipe that I can recreate on my own as well.
That is another reason why I appreciate Gramma in a Box. None of the treats are that hard to make on your own. You can use the box as inspiration for other things you can make/bake with your child/grandchild. I know that I’ll be making the Harvest Bark again.
Everything you need to make each goodie is included in the box, with the exception of stuff you already have on hand (kitchen utensils and the like). Gramma in a Box even includes frosting in bags that all you need to do is cut off the tip and you are ready to decorate.
A subscription box like this would make a great gift for a child – or gift it to Grandma so that she can have fun with her grandchildren.
Gramma in a Box will be having a special “Black Friday” sale. You can get a one year subscription (12 boxes) for $190 (normally $220). That is a $30 savings.
You can buy one box, or you can pre-pay for three, six or twelve months. I would recommend subscribing to one box. If you love, by all means, take advantage of the three, six or twelve month options.
What do you think about Gramma in a Box? Is is something you would like to explore with your child/grandchild? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts.
