About me:

Welcome and thank you for visiting!


My name is Melissa. I am a Mom, creator & owner of Handprints Discovery Box a monthly themed activity box for preschoolers & Certified Montessori Teacher.


Through this blog, we started off with sharing our DIY projects, home reno's, favourite recipes & activity ideas for adding Montessori learning at home.

Together with my husband, we are parents, run small businesses in renovations and building & creating activities for our boxes.  The blog has evolved into sharing some inspiration to help make learning simple, fun & all in one place, with simple educational activity ideas to do at home with your little ones, a few DIY projects and some of our family's favourite recipes & snacks.


As parents, business owners and homeowners, we understand that we all have responsibilities in life and are always looking for ways to make things simpler and more efficient. I share ideas and tips in hopes of inspiring and helping others to explore, discover and focus on enjoying family time and adding some creativity and fun. After all, Life is Yours to Define.

I hope that you find something here that sparks your interest. I look forward to sharing this journey together!

Yours to Define
