My kid loves to learn through fun

In our culture, parents start teaching kids Arabic, English and Dhivehi letters in a conventional way as early as possible. Some times during the first year. We tried a program called ‘Brillkids’ to teach our son English and our local language (Dhivehi) letters and words. He took interest in the program until he turned two. We noticed that learning through play, maximizing fun is the only way that works for him. We realized that to teach him, we need to be artistic and creative, and most importantly we should have the patience. I lack all of these characteristics but my wife is creative enough to teach him through play, focusing on what he likes the most. The following diagrams are some of the examples. At the moment, he is obsessed with vehicles, especially cars. So, that's the main theme.
