My 2 year old DD has been going through the typical stone collecting thing recently, but a few minutes ago I saw her pulling at something she had put in her pocket. Hubby thought it was paper but I got a peek and recognised it straight away - just for laughs I asked him to get it.

She had both my ATM cards, one in each pocket  rolleyes.gif

So that got me wondering - what have you found in your kids pockets?  huh.gif

One of my old mobile phones that I had given to them as a toy, DS2 (and DD) go to gymnastics, the first thing they usually do are forward rolls, as one of his instructors was helping him into position she felt something in his pocket and pulled it out, little rat had brought along the phone and hidden it in his pocket. Another time while using the bars he was tipped upside down and out fell two matchbook cars from his pockets lol (this taught me to ask him to leave all toy cars in the car, guess he thought that didn't mean the phone lol).

With DS it was - sand; matchbox cars and rocks  or as he called them 'pretty crystals'.

DD it was always a 'special drawing'.  sigh.  I washed so many of her special drawings.

Ds (3) is tools, he is obsessed with screwdrivers, nuts, bolts anything to 'fix' things with. He steals them from dh's shed if he gets the chance and we find them under his pillow, in his pockets.

DD collects rocks, not even nice ones, just gravel out of a garden bed for a hotel we pass on the way to daycare. Then we line them up above the coat hook when we get there.
I've given her some of my old/expired/no longer used cards (not credit or debits ones though) to play with that are 'her' cards.
She doesn't normally have pocket though.

Not my children thankfully but my sister had a habit of collecting snails in her pockets, and when mum was busy and didn't check....she'd soon find them floating in the washing machine sick.gif

My sister was such a grot!

My brother used to have a "mousy" yep a dead mouse he found on the street and used to sleep with and bring everywhere. Mum one day discovered it after checking his trousers for the washing!

My mum took my DS (at the time he was about 3) to the beach. On the way home she somehow discovered my engagement & wedding rings in his shorts pocket.

I had no idea they were missing and was so lucky considering he'd had a trip to the beach....

Not my child, but my brother. He didn't like peas as a youngster. So he hid them in his pockets. Mum found them floating on the top of the water after she did a pile of washing . .

My brother walked into the house one day and pulled something out of his pocket. My Mum and Aunt leapt onto the table before anyone else knew what it was. The lil monkey had pulled a frog out of his pocket.

A zip lock sandwich bag half full of icing sugar. Seems she thought she'd need a snack on the way to school.

Not pockets, but certainly the most surprising pooey nappy I opened was my then 18 months olds....full of the usual and a couple of dozen blue sequins she must have eaten at daycare.  We dubbed it the disco nappy.
