New resources at your fingertips every month
Whether you are teaching in a school, at home, or virtually, the Hands-On Kids Activities Club will help you get your evenings and weekends back.
You don't have to spend hours scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram for ideas and spending your money on every bundle that comes across your feed.
It's time to scale back, focus, and get into a steady, productive rhythm that's good for you and your students.
Every month you will receive a bundle of printables to help you explore a particular theme. We generally rotate between geography and science topics. Give your students the keys to the wonders of our world with a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities. HOKA is the best way for teachers to start building their theme library without breaking the bank.
Bundle Value: $60+
You will also receive a bundle of seasonal printables each month to help you explore seasons and holidays. Add fresh activities to your language, math, sensorial, and art shelves every month in a way that does not overwhelm you or your students! Yes, it can be done!
Bundle Value: $50+
Is it only me, or is everyone waiting with excitement every month..? I'm in the club since February 2020 and every month I still get excited the day before publication of new materials. And my kids are also waiting and asking what will be new tomorrow! -Fatma
Explore a new artist or art concept every month with the art appreciation pack! We will begin with a series of artist studies from Ashley Speed of Diamond Montessori which include a biography of the artist, matching cards of some of their most interesting works, and instructions for a hands-on project.
"I love introducing children to the artists and discussing what they see in the paintings and their interpretations I see. I get tired of the theme crafts in most schools. The BIG reason I bought into the program was the Artists corner. It is the one thing that sold me. Because I've found nowhere else that offers this." -Lauren

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does membership in the club work?
Our Monthly subscription plan opens twice a year. When you join you will log in to the members' area here on this site. Inside, you will find the first month's content along with your welcome bonuses. Every month that you remain a member, you will unlock a new month of content (thematic printables, seasonal printables, aritist stuy, HOKA guide and any loyalty bonuses). New content is released every 30 days.
Annual members get immediate access to 12 months of content.
All-Access members get immediate access to the full HOKA library which consists of 36 unit studies, 12 seasonal bundles, 36 artist studies, and exclusive bonuses. You will have free access to the members area for 3 years.
You will return to this site and log in to access all your content. You may download any printables you are interested in. Once they are saved on your hard drive, you may print and use at your convenience. Your credit card will automatically be charged every month or every year, depending on what plan you choose, until you cancel.
Many of our members have been with HOKA since its inception in August 2018. We look forward to welcoming you to the community!
Q: Do I get anything in the mail?
No. These are all digital products. We do provide a suggested list of books and supplementary resources that may be useful to use with the monthly printables.
Q: Is this a curriculum?
The resources we provide can be used to supplement and enrich your curriculum. However, the Club is NOT a stand-alone curriculum and should NOT be used as a replacement for your base materials. We are not providing an album and we will not show you how to present the classic Montessori materials or show you how to teach progressive skill development.
Q: I can just go to Pinterest and TpT to download printables. Why should I join?
You could, but how many hours do you spend searching and searching for the materials your students need? How long does it take you to figure out how to turn printables into hands-on activities? How much time do you spend looking up which books you can add to your activities? Which manipulatives?
Joining HOKA will help you take those hours back. Not only do we save you an enormous amount of time by putting together the printables, instructions, lists of ideas, and photos of hands-on activities, we offer you an opportunity to join a community where you can connect with us and other teachers and home-educators.
Q: I am a Montessori teacher. Is this right for me?
Between the four of us, we have more than 40 years of experience teaching using the Montessori method. While the printables are not exclusively created for Montessori classrooms, most can be easily adapted for use in a Montessori setting.
Q: I am a homeschooling parent. Can I use these activities?
Of course! You do not need to be a teacher at a school to use our printables. Yuliya uses these printables with her own children.
Q: Do I have to download all the content right away?
All of the printables will be stored on the website. There is no need to download all of them at once or fill up your hard drive. Plus, they will be nicely organized by month. Having everything in one place for you is what we aim for. Note: You will have access to the members area and all your content as long as you maintain your paid membership. If you decide to cancel, please make sure you download all your resources before you do so.
Q: What age or grade level are these printables targeting?
The resources are suitable for a range of skill levels for children aged of 3-6 years (preschool-first grade). Some resources can be used effectively in a lower elementary classroom. We do not recommend the use of these printables for children under the age of 3.
Q: Will there be breaks for the summer?
We will give you access to new printables all year long. New content will be released every 30 days, including over the summer. If you do not teach over the summer, you can download and prepare the resources for the future
Q: If I choose the annual membership do I pay for 10 months or 12 months?
This is a program for the whole year, 12 months. Each year, new printables will be added to those that are already in the club. If you joined as an annual member in 2022 or later, you will gain immediate access to 12 months of content when you enroll.
Q: Can I switch from the Annual to the Monthly plan?
Due to the limitations of our membership platform, we will not be able to switch you from the annual to the monthly plan or vice versa.
Q: If I purchase now will I be locked in at this special price?
YES! Your price will not change as long as you maintain your paid subscription, even if we raise the price for new members in the future.
Q: Can the printables be purchased separately?
Many of the printables can be found in our respective online stores. However, purchased separately they cost over $120/month. New printables we create are always released to HOKA members first and it can take a few months to a year for these printables to appear in our stores.
Q: What if I want to stop my membership and don't need any more awesome printables?
We get it! While we will be sad to see you go, you can cancel at any time! When you cancel, you will not be charged for any future months/years. Your access to the members area will end so please make sure to download your content before you cancel.
