Engrossment: n. being attracted to and/or interacting with for a relatively long duration and being focused on primarily one subset

Engrossed by a book or video game frequently means that you are exclusively focused on primarily one activity to the exclusion of others.

Watching a spider weave a web can also be an engrossing activity where you seem to be captivated or transfixed by one activity which is going on and really intensely focusing on it.

Impulsively improvising on a musical instrument is also an example of an engrossing experience.

We commonly don’t use the word engrossing when intensely focused on playing with a young child but the definition applies because we are interacting with the child exclusively.
