Teaching Kids Through Play About “Urban Survival”

April 21, 2015 by


Tasked with designing an educational kit to convey “the contributing factors of urban poverty,” designer Ryan Romanes dreamed up the Urban Survival Pack.



To be used in the classroom, the package’s playful shape and tactility is intended to engage children through play while teaching new habits for sustainable living.



Inside of the pack are 12 cardboard tubes in three sizes which contain emergency equipment, gardening hand tools, seeds, and dry seed raising mixture.


Six small tubes have vegetable seeds which can be planted as miniature potted plants right in the tubes.


With the gardening pack, the children learn about where their food comes from, while feeling a sense of ownership, responsibility and entrepreneurship.

Learn here to make your own dry seed raising mix.
