When the Cross arrives home the children are asked to unpack the bag and set up the Cross. Then an adult can light the candle. There is a story to be read and a prayer for all to say. The children are asked to think about what the story means to them and maybe write something in the diary or draw a picture.
The next morning everything is packed away again and the cross returned to school for the next child to take home. Below are some of the things that children have written or drawn previously.
