Strange things you've found in your child's backpack?

I opened up my daughter's backpack (she's 8) and I couldn't figure out why her backpack had this strange pickle smell to it.

I found this baggie of what I assume is dill. It was all liquidy and sludgy.

I had a wtf moment. :/

My DD comes home with sticks and leaves more often than not.  She collects them.

Well that's just nasty lol!I'd have to say a banana peel is probably the worst,but there is always some weird science experiment going on in one of their back packs..

My DD came home with a couple of plums that I didn't send with her. Usually though it's just a bunch of extra papers that she has drawn me a picture on.

Yeah, that used to be the case. Lol.

I asked DD where the dill came from and she said it was from her garden. (They garden at school).

but how long had it been in her backpack becoming green sludge? She has no idea.

LOL


I am paranoid of finding something nasty so she and I go through it every day before doing homeowrk.  I won't do that forever.  She is only 6.  Lately I have been having to check it in the mornings too because she has been trying to sneak toys into school.  She constantly tests me...lol

Rocks are what my daughter collects.  Drives me bonkers.

One day I couldn't figure out why her backpack was so heavy.  I opened it up and their were rocks, sticks, grass, flowers and leaves.   She was collecting them to show her science teacher at school.  But yeah I had a WTF moment.

Rocks, sequins, broken loom bracelet rubber bands, dead bugs wrapped in tissue, Bus seat foam. His friend found a hole in the bus seat and passed around foam to everyone. Apparently it was quite a treasure. I told him that was not a good idea though. LOL!

It always makes me giggle when they come home with someone elses work or paper, you have to wonder how that exchange happened. Hell my 7yo comes home in the wrong coat sometimes, it is a miracle he makes it home half the time.
