Some cats have a fascination for grocery sacks. They love to crawl into them, push them around with their front feet; I've even had a cat that crawled inside a paper bag and took a nap when he got tired of playing with it.
If you allow your cats to play with plastic grocery bags, be sure to cut the handles so your kitty won't get his head stuck and strangle himself. The same is true of large paper shopping bags from department stores.
Although I've never had any problems with my kitties playing with plastic bags, I still watch them closely to prevent them from getting trapped and suffocating inside the bag.
