Home Made Toys

Around this part of the country the people used to make their own toys. This has died away now. All the people buy their own toys in the shops. The poor people make them themselves.
The chief work of these children is making necklaces. First they pick a lot of daisies. Then they break the crown off the flower. Then they make a hole in the crown. They put a hundred of these daisies into the crown. Then they wear them around their necks.
