12. Tag


Some schools in the US have banned tag! The idea behind this ban is that kids get hurt both physically and emotionally when they play this iconic game. But, of course, spending time at recess playing active games must be a no-no!

1. Halloween and Christmas


The Oregon school district board banned all Christmas attire to ensure that the religious views of other members of their community are met and respected. And also because the Grinch did steal Christmas!

An English school sent 2 of its pupils home and then suspended them...for a snowball fight. A ban on snowball fights was introduced to ensure the safety of all children. That’s right. All those generations who played snowballs outside of school. How did they even survive? It’s so last century to play snowballs outside when it’s a wintry day with loads of snow.

Some schools in the UK have banned using toilet paper tubes for craft projects in fear of spreading germs and bacteria. So you won’t see any toilet paper rolls in the classrooms. Or this will happen. Paper mummy!

8. Shorts for boys


Amidst a heatwave last summer, a British school introduced a new dress code for its male students: no shorts inside the classrooms. So the boys decided to go with skirts. Nobody banned those. Around 30 boys turned up wearing skirts to school. Well, then. Skirts it is!

7. Birthday party invitations


A British school decided that handing out birthday party invitations in front of all the students must only be done if all the kids are invited. Otherwise, “it is uninclusive and unkind.” Will this teach acts of kindness?

6. Spinners


Schools across both the US and the UK have banned this generation’s favorite toy: fidget spinners. Their reasons were safety and distraction concerns. Once designed for ADHD and autism treatment, they turned into a worldwide craze.
