My 12 year old had a cheese knife in her backpack. Said her friend gave it to her for Xmas
nothing super crazy has been found in my kids backpack but I do find it really funny the amount of fruit and toys and random kitchen utensils that my daughter steals from her dads house, shes just turned 4
This was about 17 years ago when my son was 5. The school called me to tell me that they found a toy gun in his backpack. He pulled it out to play and pretend to shoot the other kids, totally innocent. It passed through my morning check, because he put it in his lunchbox that went in his backpack and I didn't see it
When I was in elementary school, the teacher took away a book from me called. "Where do I come from?" It was a book that was meant to teach kids about birds and bees. I wanted to show my friends. You can use your imagination for the rest.
my oldest is a collector. He sees it he picks it up. He's had baseballs, softballs, lacrosse balls, broken sprinkler parts, random crap in his backpack.
