Last night, my 5 year old son literally spent 90 minutes playing with brown paper lunch bags. He created 2 armies. One for our cat, Ruffles...one for me. Apparently, we are going into battle. He colored uniforms onto the bags, then set them up in strategic battle positions.

Someone tell me why I am going to be spending hundreds of dollars on Christmas toys this month when brown lunch bags seem to entertain him just as much!
