Children in Rural Communities

Since they do not have access to expensive commercially manufactured toys, children in rural communities entertain themselves in a variety of ways. Some play with wheelbarrows and cooking pots. It is also common for children from these communities to make their own toys from sun-baked clay and materials like wire, which is commonly used to fence fields and other enclosures.

Many rural homesteads are populated by dogs. While some of these dogs afford security against unwelcome visitors, others are pets usually cared for by children.
