The Children Of The Nile

Children Didn't Wear A form of clothing. (I'm Glad I Didn't Live In Ancient Egypt) However During The colder months & important events Children wore wraps or robes. Young girls usually kept their hair in pigtails while boys had shaved heads, except for one braided lock worn to one side. Though normally only wealthy children did this, peasant children just wore wigs like the rest of the families. Poorer Families wore jewelry that was made of copper or faience.(even the children) Peasant children usually started wearing jewelry around the age of 7 or 8. For the richer families jewelry was made of gold, silver, or electron. Richer Children started wearing jewelry around the age of 4 or 5.(sometimes before they started wearing clothing!)
