A note about the City of Jerusalem. In Level 1 you can reduce the number of wall pieces by just gluing a few together. There is no need to remake the material.
An observation: In our atrium we greet the children at the door, often with the sign of peace . Just before they step into the room there is a small San Damiano crucifix.
The moment they finally ‘see’ it is precious. The ‘seeing’ is often a few weeks after beginning their life in the atrium – so after altar 1 and Sign of the cross. Full of delight they return to the door often, pondering the image and making the sign of the cross in front of it.
