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

    One day, I was subbing for a gym teacher for a third grade classroom. I took the kids outside for recess. I noticed one girl chasing another with a black rope looking thing. I went over to ask the girl what it was and she handed it to me. She said she found it. I dropped it immediately in disgust and told her to throw it away. It was another girl’s hair extension.

    One year a Kindergarten student brought a pretty ‘vase’ to class & she was reaching in & getting a pinch of the content for each student on their desk top. I walked over to investigate and asked her ’WHAT" she had in her jar. She told me it was her ’grandmother" and that was her remains. Naturally we called mom & she had to come get ’grandma".

    Wow! I’m blown away by the crazy things some teachers have discovered. In my 33 years of teaching, primarily eighth grade English, I never once encountered anything like those "unique " discoveries.

  • MS. B

    First-grader was in the bathroom entirely too long. She returned with a used, pink tampon applicator that she had stuck over her pointer finger and was waving around. She bawled her eyes out when I made her throw away her “magic wand… when you pour water in one end it shoots out the other!”

  • Ms. Melissa

    My first year teaching 3rd graders I was starting on our morning vocabulary and spelling lesson when I heard something sounding similar to a meow. The students all heard it because everyone went quiet listening again. Upon a second meow a student raised her hand to tell me it was her phone. I knew it was no ringtone. I asked her to bring me the bag and after opening the drawstring cinch sack there were 3 kittens barely old enough to be separated from there heir mother. Turned out she had just wanted to show her friends on the bus and didn’t tell her parents.
