Let me start by saying we have the best neighborhood. Everyone is friendly, the kids all play outside together in what can best be described as the neighborhood gang. It doesn't matter if you're 2 or 12, you're included in sidewalk chalk and late night bonfires. So it wasn't a surprise last October when the doorbell rang late one night and we walked outside to find a basket full of Halloween goodies on our porch with a note saying we'd been BOO'd.
The tradition continued again this year and it's the talk of the bus - who's been boo'd, who you want to boo, the kids get all excited and the adults do, too, because our BOO's include treats for everyone.
It's easy to start BOO'ing in your neighborhood. Just print out two copies of each of the below printables and put together two baskets for two neighbors. Here's a sample of what we did this year. Our BOO included two pumpkin beers for the parents, glow necklaces, a haunted house window cling, pop up spiders, spiky bouncy balls and slap bracelets. We skipped candy since they will be getting a ton of that over the next few weeks. Everything is from the Halloween section at Target and cost $1-$3.
