Last night at small group i brought up the proud tradition of enforcing youth group exile.

The equation is simple. You're at a youth gathering and something greatly annoys you or a danger is uncovered by the kids. Almost by magic, the offending object disappears the next week!

Exiled... never to be seen again (unless it is discovered years later because you forgot where you hid it).

Over the years I've exiled balls, cushions, poofs (otherwise known as an ottoman), hockey sticks, 2 meter long twirling sticks, excess chalk and more.

The only downside? The deception that occurs once the kiddies try to track down the dangerously annoying contraption of fun. The upside? Making a challenge of trying to find the missing item.
