Boo your neighbors and friends

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and you’re finally settled into your back-to-school routine, so I loved the chance to make my favorite season even more fun for my kids and the people in their lives.

Last year, we woke to a cute basket on our porch loaded with fun goodies, window clings, and a note encouraging us to Boo! three other families. While the candy didn’t last long, the fun and mystery did; my girls spent days wondering who had Boo’ed us, who we could Boo, and what should go in our baskets. Instead of focusing on getting candy on Halloween, we spent the month thinking of others, conspiring as a family, and generally getting our giggles back amid tailgate, homework, and pre-holiday hubbub.


How to Boo:

Here's the chance for you to start the tradition with your family:

  1. Download and print the free You've Been Boo'ed printable.
  2. Choose who you want to Boo (can be as many or as few people as you would like).
  3. Buy or make something to go in your Boo bag.
  4. Add the printable to the bag along with your goodies.
  5. Secretly deliver the bag to your recipients.
  6. SHHH.....don't tell it was you that Boo'd.
  7. Share your pictures on Instagram using #youvebeenbooed.

We can’t wait to Boo a few friends and neighbors this year and I want you to JOIN US! Kick off a fun You’ve Been Boo’ed plan this weekend to get your neighborhood buzzing before Halloween.

It doesn’t need to be expensive to bring holiday fun to your neighborhood. Here’s a list of cheap or free items to tuck in a basket, bucket, or bag:

Who Should You Boo?

  • Teachers—leave a mug with a $5 gift card to Starbucks or a favorite afternoon snack inside
  • Friends—Leave baskets with age-appropriate Dollar Store items inside, plus a copy of this blog/printable to show them how to pay it forward
  • Neighbors—Bring a little mystery to your street by leaving treats or snacks in a tin on the front porch of a favorite neighbor
  • Nursing Homes—Contact your local nursing home and ask if you can drop off a few baskets for the residents. Ask if they prefer sugar-free candy, crafts, or handmade notes.
  • Principals—They miss out on the sweet notes and fun moments throughout the year. Remind them that you appreciate them… in the spookiest way possible!
  • Local law enforcement—hand deliver a basket of treats with a thank you to your local police and fire departments. We don’t recommend secrecy on this one!
  • Spouses—don’t forget to leave a sweet treat for your honey at work, at home, or in the car. A little extra smile goes a long way!
