because children perceive their every moment !! they have much faster metabolism that's all !!!! not to be confused with disability and being placed in an anechoic chamber - this is completely different - lack of information or disability "stretches the time" because when a person is in excruciating pain, he begins to re-experience every moment and, like a baby, overloads his brain! that is, different reasons lead to the same result !!!!
There was a scientific article where an interesting relationship was put forward between the metabolism in the body and the perception of time. It turns out an inverse relationship - the faster the metabolism in the body, the longer the time lasts and vice versa.
Because the child remembers more. A person, not being able to feel time directly, perceives it as a sequence of memorable events. Since in childhood a person gets to know the world and his memory constantly captures new information, then a month or a year in a child "contains" more events than in an adult. However, there are other hypotheses as well. One, for example, assumes that when assessing time intervals, a person correlates them with the time that he lived (more precisely, that he remembers). For a child, a day or a week is more of a life than for an adult. Another hypothesis links the feeling of "slow time" in children with a high intensity of metabolic processes.

There was a similar question. I wrote my point of view in the comments. If interested, read it)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) )))))))))))
When you are five years old, 1 year = 1/5 of your life
And when an individual is no longer five, but thirty years old, then 1 year = 1/30 of his life
These are the entertaining fractions
Just recently I came across a post on VKontakte on this topic. I wondered this question for a long time and finally found a reasonable answer.
This is due to the fact that our sense of time is strongly tied to remembering events that occur, and remembering, in turn, to an emotional response to events. The larger and brighter (more emotional) the events, the richer and longer the time seems to us.
Children almost always have both the number of events and the emotional reaction stronger - for them everything around is new and interesting. With age, a large number of repetitive, lengthy and monotonous events ceases to evoke any emotions and, as a result, ceases to be remembered.
Well, a habit also matters - for adults it is normal when nothing happens for several hours , but for many children this is torture - after all, they are accustomed to a rich stream of events and emotions.
That is why, in order to make life brighter, more interesting and richer, it is advised to travel, do something new, maintain the ability to be surprised :).
