A designer's project repurposes supply boxes to act as more than packaging for refugee children

Even though the number of shipped relief packages are far from enough to help all refugees, quite a high number of cardboard boxes usually go to waste. Designer Lisanne Koning created packages that also can double as toys for children. Project Inside the Box consists of colorful shapes and game boards printed on boxes so refugee children can assemble and play with them.

Koning created multiple games and toys. One board game that comes on a box is similar to Candy Land, while another box is a decorated truck that children can cut out and build into a three-dimensional toy.

Koning thought of this idea not just to eliminate waste, but also because she believes that children have a basic need for play that has to be met. The designer writes on her website, “Every child deserves the chance to play untroubled no matter what the circumstances are.”
