Mother's Day DNG Review

A month early??? Yeah... that's how we roll at the Wells house! Hahaha... ok, you can stop laughing hysterically now. For those of you who know us, we are more "right on time" kind of people, and this DNG review is right on time for you! Tried and tested, I can now highly recommend the Mother's Day DNG to you as May is quickly approaching.

Amanda Bennett has delivered yet another educational treasure.  Designed with K-4th grade students in mind, the Mother's Day DNG introduces children to the origins and founder of the Mother's Day holiday; it demonstrates how mothers are revered and celebrated in multiple cultures; and it paints a vivid picture of Biblical motherhood.  All of this is accomplished through stunning graphics, high-quality videos, informationl websites, activity pages, lapbooking elements, family fun opportunities, and suggested additional resources.  

An outline of the week's daily topics is included below.  Also, take a sneak peek at some of the pages ready for immediate download.  Not only is this study kid-pleasing, but it is 100% Mom friendly.  Amanda Bennett has tackled the prep-work and research for you.  Mom, just download-n-go experience with your children.

Day 1: What Is Mother's Day
Day 2: The History of Mother's Day
Day 3: Celebrating Mother's Day
Day 4: Preparations for Mother's Day
Day 5: Goodies for Mother's Day

This particular DNG had some really thoughtful, engaging crafting options.  Excellent "how-to" videos aided in the creation of some very special gifts.  Since Mamaw and Grandma are blog-followers, unfortunately, I can't show off the kiddos beautiful creations quite yet.  Fear not - in May, their handiwork will be proudly posted and given to the sweet grandmothers in their lives.

Another special inclusion in this study, the lapbook is actually meant to be given as a gift to Mom.  Admittedly, I want this activity not to be mom-directed, so I'm simply compiling/assembling the book.  Daddy can help the little ones with the contents.  I know the end product will be meaningful and something I cherish always.

Finally, this study allowed for some very open dialogue about Jeremiah and Rachel's First Mommy.  While I will never meet this precious woman this side of heaven, I love her more than words can say.  It is important for Jeremiah and Rachel to know this, and I always welcome them to talk about their family freely.  My darling Rachel has no memory of her mother and Jeremiah's are few, but I will help him cling tightly to those.  In our house, Mother's Day and Father's Day celebrate two sets of parents - both who equally love their God-given children.  We are so very blessed!

I invite you to be blessed as well.  Carve out a week to remember mothers in your family, in your church, in your community, and across the globe.  Spend time in the Word, and pay close attention to the Godly mothers represented therein.  Amanda Bennett's Mother's Day DNG will assist you in making this a memorable, joyous holiday.
