We just got back from a trip to see my in-laws, so I was ill-prepared for today's feast day.

Thankfully, the children at Holy Heroes were more prepared than me!   Over breakfast, we enjoyed the free video clip and coloring pages they have available today.


We also read the Saint Helen page in Picture Book of Saints and, later in the day, will be reading the St. Helen story from Story Library of the Saints.

After Mass, we may also revisit a fun sensory craft that we enjoyed last year: packing peanut crosses and sculptures.  Or, we may enjoy some of the other activity ideas and prayers shared at Catholic Culture.

There are other simple ideas over at Catholic Culture.

What are some of your favorite activities, prayers and traditions for celebrating the Exaltation of the Cross?

  Please feel free to share about them in comment here or on our Training Happy Hearts Facebook page.  If you leave a link to an idea, I will pin it on the Training Happy Hearts: A Call to Faith Formation in Young Children Pinterest board
