Teachers often talk about the funny little things that come out of the mouths of our little humans. But, sometimes, the deliveries that come out of their precious little hands are just as…. interesting! Recently we shared about a present that Mr. Nelson from @_thirdgradeswag received… his first lemon given to him as a gift. You know what they say…

When a student gives you lemons… make margaritas!!

When we shared this cute present that Mr. Nelson received, we asked our amazing followers what the weirdest gifts were that they had received from a student. The responses were….. hilarious!!

(5) Nectarine seed… it’s the thought that counts!

    A friend of mine received a blue toilet deodoriser that goes in the cistern. It was even more hilarious as it was given to the teacher when we were all gathered in the Church for our end of the year Mass and Prize Giving.

      Creepy! If it weren't for the red eyes that might be sweet...

    A ziplock bag filled with mint and by far the weirdest one was a turkey feather pen (plucked from her pet turkey with the pen shoved into the end of it).
