Think its: Stump Puffball
Lycoperdon pyriforme (Lycoperdaceae)
Small, light brown to buff spheres
with short, thick stem.
Found decaying wood.
Its Latin name means “wolf farts”.

I personally would take them out of the yard with kids.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Welcome to NGA, @Cyph3rOz .

I have no idea what your mushrooms are but totally agree with removing them; better safe than sorry!
