What weird stuff have you found while helping your kids clean their rooms?

Today, while helping my 3 year old clean her room, I found my egg slicer (the type with all the little wires), a bunch of my cloth shopping bags, and a reciept for Prilosec OTC.

I found empty beer bottles with messages in them. Message in bottle! Apparently my daughter {now 8} was prepping her pirate bday party...LOL

A graveyard of dead rolli-pollies (sp?) :/ We had just moved to San Diego, my then 6 year old was very amused by these bugs, she would bring them home and collect them... but they'd die. She stopped bringing them home after that.

Clumps of hair under the bed....DS used to have longish curly hair and he was using his safety scissors to cut it and then would hide it under his bed. His hair was such a mop, we never noticed!

Under 10 YO DD's bed - Assorted books, Mac 'n Cheese, spoons, forks, candy wrappers, string cheese wrappers, Popsicle sticks, her Ipod, sea monkey food, Gerbil seeds, hair (from cutting her american girl doll's hair), empty water bottles, half empty water bottles with body glitter sprinkled in (?) the cat, the other cat, pencil shavings, and HUGE dust bunnies.

Yikes.
