In this paper, we present TanCreator, a tangible authoring tool which facilitates children to create games based on Augmented Reality (AR) and sensor technologies. Combining AR elements and sensors in games bridges virtual world with realistic surroundings closely together, providing more joyful and intuitive creating experiment for children.
