Especially, lessons practical training exercises need environmental platforms to enhance teaching yet physical platforms could have Pandemic related risks for humans. The risks are even higher, for children in primary education and for children with neurodevelopmental disorders who need to learn with repeated exercises. This study proposes a color learning mobile application for children that is based on augmented reality. The application is supposed to teach colors to young pupils in an enjoyable way. In this paper, three primary colors: red, yellow, blue, and three secondary colors: orange, green, and purple are taught with 3-D ball animation based on the augmented reality technique. This animation introduces how the secondary colors originate from the combination of primary colors. This is an enjoyable, teaching-learning, and self- repeatable activity for children in a COVID-19 pandemic state.
