Found this in my kids’ dirt box.

Well that's a really cool find.  It does look like it could be a Giant Clitocybe. They can be up to 18" and grow in open disturbed areas from August through October.  They're not a very common mushroom in Indiana,  but they are around. I've never IDed one before. 


Did you take a spore print?

Actually, when I just went out to look at it, it looks like there’s kind of a spore print on the patio table!  It’s kind of a white dusting all under where the mushroom sat overnight.
