Last year one of our neighbors ‘boo-ed’ us. This was the first time we’d ever had it happen. I was a bit startled being at home and hearing a “thunk” on the front porch, but quickly started laughing once I realized we’d just been boo-ed. My son couldn’t wait to participate and ‘boo’ some neighborhood friends.
Ready to ‘boo’ your neighbors? Here’s how:
- Bags or treat buckets (i.e., something to “contain” all the stuff)
- You’ve Been Boo-ed printable set
- Washi tape
- Treats (stickers, candy, etc.)
Step 1 Download our You’ve Been Boo-ed printable set. Print 2 copies of the instructions and “we’ve been BOO-ed” sign. Print 1 copy of the “you’ve been BOO-ed cards”. Cut out the cards.
Step 2 Select your bags. Use washi tape to adhere one of the Boo-ed cards to each bag. They don’t have to be perfect. A little angle adds to the fun.
Step 3 Fill with treats! We chose to include some cute Halloween themed notepads, pencil toppers, stickers, glow-in-the-dark skeletons, and fun sized candies. The latter I was cautious to choose something that was nut free since one of my son’s friends we were boo-ing has a peanut allergy.
Step 4 Add a copy of the instructions plus “we’ve been BOO-ed” sign.
Step 5 Take your bags and sneakily “boo” your neighbors by leaving a bag on their front porch.
