11 Weirdest Things Teachers Have Ever Confiscated

We asked teachers what were the strangest things they have ever confiscated in their classrooms. Some of the responses were literally unbelievable. We put together a list of the funniest and weirdest ones. Enjoy!

1. "After hearing a girl scream in the middle of class one day, I asked what happened. She told me that one of the boys touched her with a 'giant booger ball.' She wasn't kidding... A couple of the boys were having a contest over who could stick the most boogers together into a massive booger ball. Disgusting!" -Mrs. J.

2. "One time, I walked into a study hall and found 2 boys hysterically laughing, while hitting each other with something. I told them to break it up and give me whatever they were using to hit each other. It was 2 fluorescent pink dildos. I can't even tell you how embarrassed the mother was, when she had to come into school to retrieve them." -Ron P., Fifth Grade

11. "Once, I walked in the boy's bathroom and caught kids taking shots of something. When I made them hand over whatever it was they were drinking, it wasn't alcohol. It was a bottle of snake blood! One of the boy's dads had just returned from a trip to Thailand. Quite the souvenir!-Frank T.

    1st year teaching K , after many years in 5th grade. Students around the carpet and I could tell something was up… Next thing I know teacher from next door comes in and ask for a certain boys backpack. Apparently the hubbub was in her room too, the boy have been bragging about it since the bus ride to school.. Sure enough there was a gun in the kindergarteners backpack. it was pink in almost looked fake…. It was a pellet gun which are not as dangerous as some guns but definitely could put an eye out. Principal confiscated it called the parents made them come get it, I felt like more should have been done toward the parents but basically it was swept under the rug. Also same here kindergarteners found a condom on the playground and blew it up like a balloon. I really hope it wasn’t used I don’t know I didn’t investigate too much just ask them to quickly put it in the garbage…

    A student brought in her mother’s pregnancy test for show and tell. She wanted to share with the other students how her mom knew she was pregnant because it was in her pee. You can imagine how shocked her mother was when I contacted her to come and pick it up.

    First year as a teacher, had a second grader with a Playboy centerfield. Called home to tell embarrassed Mom. Five minutes later the dad called to ask who was the centerfold. As this was a Catholic school and I was standing in the front office , I had to answer this question in front of my principal, a Franciscan nun. "Ummm..she likes sunshine and gates phonies… " yikes. .

    We’ve had several crazy incidents. Two of the most rememberable was a pre-kindergartener brought a flask in his lunch kit, we didn’t notice it until he started drinking out of it. Thankfully it was just water! The second, my friend was getting a kindergarten student out of a car in the morning and his backpack was open and she saw mom’s breast enhancement pills in his backpack. She discreetly took them out and left them in the car.
