Fostering fantasy play for young children through augmented reality has the potential to support 21st century learning activities by stimulating creativity, communication, and flexibility. We present a design exploration of MathMythos AR, an augmented reality card-based math addition game that enables children to engage in basic math tasks embedded in fantastical narratives. We provide insights into our design process, the effects of fantasy and everyday narratives, and discuss implications for AR card games that show potential to foster motivation for learning math. The presented insights are the foundation for the the next iteration of MathMythos AR, where we aim to create compelling and immersive AR narratives for learning.
