You’ve Been Booed! This is such a great idea for some neighborhood fun for Halloween. I was delighted a couple of days ago when I stepped out of our front door to see a box filled with Halloween treats. I know the idea has been around for a while, but I wanted to share my take on it with you.
We’ve lived in the same house since 2004 and this is the first year that anything like this has been done in the neighborhood. I’m not sure who decided to get it started, but I’m happy that they did! The box left for us was filled with not only treats, but several fun Halloween items, too.
Tucked inside the box I found two notes. One was an explanation of what this is all about and instructions on how to keep it going.
The second was a decorative sheet to place outside so that other neighbors would know that we’ve already been booed.
When I found the box on our doorstep, I was about to leave for a Target run. Y’all know I love the Dollar Spot or Bullseye’s Playground as it’s being called now. I knew I’d find some fun items to use to boo my neighbors. I spotted these fun Halloween buckets for only $1 each. Perfect!
I found lots of treats and then added more from the candy and cookies aisle. I was also stocking up on Halloween candy for trick or treaters, so I used some of the treats from a large bag for my boo buckets.
I decided to share the canvas bags that I embellished with Cricut vinyl. I emptied out the stuffing and added candy from the large bag. Once I had the buckets filled, I copied the You’ve Been Booed and We’ve Been Booed notes and added them to the buckets.
How to Start a You’ve Been Booed Neighborhood Fun for Halloween Tradition
- Print the instructions for participating along with a You’ve Been Booed Sign
- Print a We’ve Been Booed Sign
- Gather treats and assorted Halloween items
- Buy or make containers for the treats
- Assemble the treats and deliver them to two neighbors (hopefully without being seen)
This was such a fun idea for our neighborhood! I was delighted to play along and share the Boos with our neighbors! I hope they’re enjoying the treats and being Booed!
