Paper Bag Town Fun...
My mother and father have given us the wonderful gift of a subscription to High Five Magazine for Sugar Plum's birthday the past few years. This month's issue had such a great activity for little ones... two pages of drawings of doors, windows, signs, and plants to glue to paper lunch bags to create Paper Bag Town. We stuffed each bag with pages from a catalog and I stapled them together to create the buildings at varying heights once Sugar Plum finished cutting the pictures and gluing them down the way that she wanted. Little Man got in on the action by setting up his train tracks, trains, and road signs add to the scene. This activity has made the afternoon fly by! I think that this little town could be created easily by drawing doors, windows, and signs directly on the bags... how about a Gingerbread House??

Such a fun activity!!
They look like they had a ball. My mother-n-law gets my little girl (who is also 4) the same magazine subscription and she loves it ! We haven't gotten around to trying the paper bag town yet, but now I think we have to ! Love your son's idea of using his trains too, I think we will do the same !
My sister got a subscription to this magazine for my son, and he loves it. We're saving this activity for a rainy day :)
