May Gramma in a Box Review and Coupon

Gramma in a Box is a new subscription that sends fun cookie and candy crafts that are great for bonding with your family, whether they live nearby or are further away!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Gramma in a Box was created by Terry; she was inspired to start the box after three of her grandchildren moved to Seattle. She started boxing up cookies and treats that they could make together when they Skyped, and that turned into a subscription that anyone can share with their family!

Each month you'll receive three cookie and candy crafts with almost everything you'll need to complete them. The only things you may need to supply are household staples like a spoon to stir up a mixture or a bowl to melt chocolate in.

All of the boxes will include homemade cookies, so you don't even have to worry about baking anything yourself! There's enough for 15 to 20 finished cookie/candy treats each month.

Here are the pricing options:
  • Monthly: $20 per month
  • Three Months: $55 every three months (save $5)
  • Six Months: $110 every six months (save $10)
  • 12 Months: $220 every 12 months (save $20)
Shipping is free to the U.S. and taxes are included. If you want to cancel, do so by the 25th of the month.

May's box featured three crafts that followed the life cycle of the butterfly. Here's everything that was inside.

Each craft has a card with instructions, plus there's a separate card with an introduction to the theme and a list of the box contents on the other side. The instructions are simple and easy to follow, and I like that the opposite side of each instruction card has a list of the ingredients and possible allergens for each craft.

The first project was Marshmallow Caterpillars and included mini marshmallows and melting chocolate. I had to use a bowl and spoon of my own, but I'm sure every kitchen is equipped with these items!

The craft involved melting the chocolate discs (mine were ready after just a minute) and then using the chocolate to hold the marshmallows together. I made three different caterpillars with alternating color patterns. There's a photo of the finished product below, along with the second craft.

The second craft was a Hibernating Caterpillar, or Pupa. This craft included the melted chocolate from the first craft, along with pretzel rods, large marshmallows, and sprinkles.

This involved dipping the pretzels into the chocolate, then inserting the pretzel into the marshmallow and rolling the top half of the marshmallow into the chocolate. You could then use the sprinkles for decoration.

Here are my finished caterpillars and pupae! I love how the pupae came out and will definitely do this craft again when I need an easy dessert to pass or fun gift to give out.

The third and final craft was my favorite: Butterfly Cookies! There were two different sized butterflies and two caterpillar sugar cookies, pre-baked and carefully packaged. The box also included three colors of frosting in easy to use frosting bags and four different types of sprinkles.

I'm not great at frosting cookies, but I think these came out pretty good! I loved the different colors in the frosting and sprinkles. They're perfect for spring!

The cookies were a lot of fun to make and I liked that the frosting was already in frosting bags. It made them a lot easier to decorate. And not only were they fun to make, they were even more fun to eat! They tasted great; I love a good sugar cookie.

I had so much fun doing the Gramma in a Box crafts and a ton of fun eating them after, too! This box is fun for all ages. I can see it being a hit with younger kids and a great way for them to spend time with a parent or grandparent, but it's a lot of fun for older kids or even people my age.
