Terry Chamberlin aka Gramma In A Box

Gramma in a Box is an idea Terry developed when three of her grandchildren moved to Seattle. She was always boxing up cookies and treats that they could make together when they Skype. Once she shared this idea with other friends and family, the concept for Gramma in a Box was born! If you are lucky enough to live near your grandchildren, or as a parent you want to have a fun, creative project without all the work, then Gramma in a Box may be right for you. Or, if you are like me, and your grandchildren do not live nearby, then shipping Gramma in a Box may just be the fun, monthly activity for you send and use technology to connect.


Must Order by April 9th-No refunds after this date!
