Did children have toys? (2019/2019) by Fanny Le BagousseGrotte Chauvet - UNESCO World Heritage Site

Do you think prehistoric children…

A. Played just like any child or B. Were sent off at a young age to hunt

The correct answer is…

A. They played just like any child

Playing is a part of being human, and contributes to a child's education and development. Toys could have consisted of little dolls made of plant and/or animal matter.

A child's favorite game might have been to accompany the adults, watching them to learn from them, and copying their actions (recognizing animal tracks, identifying edible plants, recognizing medicinal plants, etc.).
