We’ve Been Out “Booing” Our Neighbors!

10/09/2009

Last year, we were new to the neighborhood.  My daughter was so excited when the door bell rang and she found a package on the front porch.  A mystery package filled with Halloween goodies.  This year, I’m going to start the “Booing” in the area.  Here is what we did to get ready:

 Halloween Boo Bags

  • We filled 4 bags (because she had friends that she couldn’t leave out) with Halloween goodies like: mini Oreos, Smarties, Candy Corn, Tootsie Rolls, and a Halloween cookie cutter.
  • You need some sort of ghost to give to each “Boo-ee.”  We found these Halloween ornaments at Kroger for $2.24 for 5.  They were super cute and it saved my laziness time.
  • Print out a “Boo” poem (see below) to attach to each bag so they know what this random bag on their porch is all about.
  • Assemble and away you go.

Tips:  It’s been raining her for 3 days straight so we put the assembled bags in zip lock freezer bags so they don’t get ruined.  You can also find those adorable Halloween trick or treat buckets at Walmart for $0.94 each.  Skip to My Lou does something where you recycle the bucket and pass it along to another neighbor, which is cool.

 

Halloween Boo Poem

This treat is for you, we hope you enjoy.  The idea is simple, one we hope you employ.
You pass the “BOO” on to 2 neighbors, along with any kind of Halloween favors.
You have 2 short days to do your spell; keep it a secret and hide it well.
If we all do our part and spread the cheer, by Halloween night it will be very clear.
We’re a friendly bunch and we like to have fun…
…so do your part and keep the “BOO” on the run.

(Post the ghost in your window or on your door so others know you’ve been BOO’d.)

 

Go out and doorbell ditch.  How often can you do that without irritating people?  See how much fun Bean and I had even though it was raining:
