Cardboard boxes.
Rocks.  Seriously, my 6 year old picked up a rock about 1/3 of a mile into a 9 mile overnighter backpacking trip and it was his only "toy" for the two days.  He would carry that sucker and talk about it, and make sure he knew where it was.  Basically a kids imagination will fire up once you stop pelting their brain with excess stimulation.  I am sure if it was not a rock it would have been a stick.  He did find a deer bone, and that lead to an hours' worth of discussion about how why I thought it was from a deer and not a dinosaur or some such.

Garage sale and thrift store scarves. My mother kept a box of old scarves for her grandchildren to play with, when she passed away the grandchildren (now grown) divided up the scarves for their own kids to use because they had so many good memories. Kids can turn these into different "costumes" and they cost next to nothing.
