FUN FACTS ABOUT CHILDREN
Being a child is fun, isn’t it? You don’t have to go to work or pay bills; but you get lots and lots of homework from your teacher which is no fun at all! Aiyekoto spent some time gathering fun facts about children in honour of Children’s Day:
- Children’s kneecaps only start to turn bony at 3 years of age, until then they are made of cartilage.
- Did you know that a 3-year old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant?
- On average, a 4-year-old child asks 437 questions a day!
- Both boys and girls in 1600s England and New England wore dresses until they were about seven years old!
- In ancient Greece, children of wealthy families were dipped in olive oil at birth to keep them hairless throughout their lives.
