Children are able to absorb information the entire time they play. Mine play all day long.
This first came to me with a two year old and his dinosaur toys. I knew homeschooling would make sense for us as soon as I got the idea, but we jumped into a much bigger world of education the first time I said, ‘well I don’t know, wanna go research on daddy’s computer with me?’
Through playing, youtube watching, playing, youtube watching, playing, and research, each new dinosaur ‘toy’ we got was quite a massive educational building block and puzzle piece.
