No wonder kids today have no imagination.
We also caught insects, mostly beatles, and frogs to play with.
I'll agree the kids today don't have a clue how to be imaginitive without using technology.
I do confess I had the best of both worlds...lots of fun toys, but I also loved playing outside til dark chasing lightening bugs, building pinestraw houses, baking mud pies, playing kick the can and catching crawfish in the creek. We were encouraged to play outdoors!
What did you do with the triangle and broomstick?
