We are so lucky to live in a neighborhood that is full of kids and families and loves to spread holiday cheer! Halloween in our neighborhood is crazy fun and the kids celebrate with decorations and games all month long! A boo basket is a little basket full of goodies like candy, Halloween socks, light up toys and anything fun in the Halloween section at Target you might find! To start the game just print out the free printables below and Boo two of your neighbors! We leave the basket of treats on the door and I like to tape or pin up the sign for them that says “you’ve been booed” then the kids ring the doorbell and run and hide! It is the most fun game of ding dong ditch expect your not a pest because you really just made somebody’s day!
My kids were SO excited to sneak around the neighborhood after dark to deliver our treats to unsuspecting friends. The best part was watching how far the “Boo” spread up and down the street, around the block, and even over to the next neighborhood area. Signs popped up on every window, and kids eagerly chatted and tried to guess who had booed who. Such fun!This year after my friend and I searched for hours trying to find the cutest printables I decided to personalize it a bit and create my own “You’ve Been Booed” printables, so that we can track just how far our initial boo love reaches. I can’t wait to see my signs up on everyone’s windows and doors, and I thought that you might like to join in the fun too!
And don’t worry if your neighborhood doesn’t have lots of kids! You can boo adults too! This year my kids booed their aunties and the basket was full of doggie chew toys, Halloween notepads, and candy. It really brightens the day when you get an unexpected surprise and it really is so much fun to spread the joy!
