Children learn in many different ways: they learn through observation, listening, testing cause and effect, interacting with others, exploring their curiosities, and playing. Kids are like sponges, they absorb so much information on a daily basis and through this they learn about themselves, others, and the world. Don’t you miss the days when learning was that easy? Learning is fun for kids, probably because they do not realize they are actually learning. But they enjoy making
To many people, babies and toddlers just seem like cute and entertaining fat rolls. They grab whatever they can get their hands on, stick everything in their mouths, and tumble around the house.
