Some think the elderly lead a boring life, playing bingo all the time, but these people couldn't be further from the truth. To crush the negative stereotypes about the senior citizens, Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the funniest times grandparents surprised everyone around them.

From creating a DIY butter dish to providing the birds with materials for their nests, these unforgettable moments prove that the grey-haired folks are capable of much more than sitting around all day, looking for their glasses. Scroll down to catch a glimpse of how interesting your life would look like if you visited your grandparents more often and vote for your favorite pics!

Guess ya'all have to be over 30, used to get these giant Jawbreakers from any major amusement park. About the size of an orange, this is a perfect example of the farthest any kid had ever gotten into one. After this point you would have lock jaw and your tongue would most likely be bleeding (yes last part was a joke....mostly)

Its a bath bomb, bath bombs have a flat spot so they can sit on the side of a tub and they are rough textured and fizz away leaving a rough texture. Jaw Breakers or gobstoppers had a smooth texture and melted away smoothly, and every one I've ever seen had lots and lots of multicolored layers that made rings in every color of crayon in the big box, especially if you 'cracked' open the jaw breaker.

Melissa Rosler

Yeah, I think bath bomb too. Jawbreakers (the big kind) wouldn't wear that evenly even if you just licked it on one side. And it looks like there's a sticker on the bottom!

That's not a sticker, that's just the core layer. It's a bit more compact than the other layers so the humidity over the years hasn't worn it away as much as the surrounding layers, making it stand out.

Bobbi Newell

A decorative rock like a geode, made when lightning strikes the ground and fuses whatever sediments are there. It looks like an ordinary round rock on the outside, but when you cut it in half, you expose the patterns inside. There are also decorative rocks with crystals inside. People display them in their homes because they're a cool piece of nature.

Captain here- it is actually a bath bomb; giant gobstoppers don't have a surface that rough, they don't have a mould line around the circumference, and they aren't flat on one side with a label in the middle. Go look up some pictures if you don't believe me- it sure as heck ain't a gob stopper, despite what you may want to believe.
