Abstract: Purpose With the promulgation of China's "Three-child Policy", the cardinal number of children population has surged. The era of parent-child format arrives. Since ancient times, China has emphasized on education. With the development of the internet, people have improved the Chinese character position unprecedently. In recent years, the game education APP of mobile terminal has developed with irresistible force due to the development of the mobile devices and the influence of COVID-19. But due to its virtual property, offline interaction is weak, and it isn't easy to review and memorize. The preschool children at the age of 3-6 focus on the concrete thinking, and their recognition to external things mainly depends on the concretization and representation of things and the association of representation, accordingly constructing knowledge. Therefore, under the trend of reduction of excessive homework burden and off-campus tutoring, it is critical to inquire how to effectively build the popular online and offline "AR game gene" in design research. Method The significance and opportunity for etymon literacy method to be introduced to children Chinese game design is found through theoretical research; The AR technology is used in practice through technical research to build the design method of virtual and real interaction; The law of development of Children's cognition and motion interaction is researched and the characteristics of word root and grapheme of Chinese characters are split and combined to find the coherence point of Children's cognitive development and literacy method and design a set of suitable Chinese character formula, excavating the similarity of word formation thought and design thought, and enlightening children's thought with word formation; Results Chinese character laboratory aims at the children at the age of 3-6 [critical period of Whole Brain Development], is oriented by the development of multiple intelligence of children, and takes AR foundation as technological base. The whole design research is analyzed in this paper and the work formation process is summarized. Conclusions The etymon literacy method and AR experimental game are of important innovative significance in children's thinking development. Chinese character laboratory fully considers the uniqueness of children in social cognition in design through etymon literacy method, will utilize children's curiosity to introduce laboratory concept, namely experiment is game, and conducts series connection of commonly used characters in the form of Chinese character atlas from fragment to systematization. In the meanwhile, AR children's interactive games are characterized by the vivid and interesting virtual Chinese character model, entity Chinese character card, AR technology's unique interactivity, immersion and imagination, and utilize the computer technology to achieve interaction, conforming to the children's concrete thinking. In the future, technology will gradually replace mankind's left brain for calculation and analysis, but the creative thinking controlled by right brain can't be substituted by technology, because the knowledge is limited, but the imagination and creativity are limitless. This design breaks through the boundedness, singleness and fragmentization of current Chinese character literacy for children, which not only can promote the development of comprehensive quality and creative thinking, but also can help children learn Chinese characters in open thinking. So it is considered as a key to develop the potential of children in all directions.
