There have been many applications with AR technology such as advertisement, education, etc. Books with AR technology are the most interesting application area. In this paper, we propose an AR coloring jigsaw puzzles which provides users with puzzle pieces for coloring and AR/VR worlds for colored 3D animations. The proposed puzzle is composed of a jigsaw puzzle with unpainted pieces and a smart phone application. The jigsaw puzzle with unpainted pieces is designed large pieces of puzzle and several uncolored pieces. The smart phone application has an AR scene for extracting color from puzzle and a VR world for user interaction with colored animals.
