May's Gramma in a Box!!



Hey neighbors!!

We received another Gramma in a Box! It is always fun to open the box and see what Terry came up with this time.  I have to admit, I really love the colors and sprinkles in this box!!  We made Pretzel Butterflies, Butterfly Bark, and of course some wonderful Spring Cookies!!


As always the Gramma in a Box comes with everything you need to create three special treats.  All I needed to add was a small microwave safe bowl (to use in your microwave) and a spoon.  Gramma provides everything else you need in the box.  All the ingredients and she even includes the wax paper to create your treats on.  Each box comes with 4 cards.  The first tells you a little about the month's theme, the projects you will create and it gives you the deadline to sign up for the next month's box.  The back of that card tells you what you will find inside and the other supplies you might need.




The next 3 cards are the individual projects.  Each one tells you what you need for the project, gives precise directions for creating the treat and on the back tells you the ingredient and lists any known allergens.

This is such a unique box to get together with your grandchildren, your children or even ask a few of your children's friends over to help.  If you live too far away from your grandchildren, you can FaceTime or Skype while the projects are being created.





You can do one project a day or do them all at once.  Whichever works out best for you.  Gramma in a Box provides you the opportunity to spend quality time together and all the planning is already done for you.  No searching for ingredients or having to plan activities, they are right there and ready to go.


Terry, the founder of Gramma in a Box comes up with original ideas each month.  Many of the boxes are holiday or season themed.  We have enjoyed doing several of her boxes and have not been disappointed with a single box.  You can choose just one month to try it out, or you can sign up and have the boxes delivered monthly.  June 3rd is the deadline for the next Gramma in a Box.  Click on Gramma in a Box to subscribe.




 The really good news here is we are doing a giveaway on our Instagram for next month's box.  So, be sure to drop in At the Fence on Instagram to enter.

So glad you all stopped by!! See you next time!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
