Fun Halloween Activities - Boo Your Neighbor
I asked her what it was, and she explained that she had been "Booed." I was intrigued. Basically once you've been booed, you have 2 days to boo 2 of your neighbors. The tradition starts at the beginning of October, and hopefully by Halloween, everyone in the neighborhood has been booed. She said her kids love it. They come home and scream "We've been booed!" And then they help their mom make baskets for the other families in the neighborhood.
I immediately fell in love with the idea, and it even comes with its own poem and easy instructions. If you'd like to spread the Halloween Cheer, feel free to download a copy of the poem here. There are definitely a few variations out there, but after browsing the internet, this version was my favorite. I found it on Bunny Cakes Blog. It actually looks like she has a new version with a chevron design as well, but I did not see it until after I had already made my baskets.
I included some goldfish crackers and kids' board books, since I know one of our neighbors has small
I guess I'll just wait now and see if my efforts pay off. Hopefully, I'll start to see little Boo signs pop up in people's windows. Do you have any fun Halloween traditions? Or do you Boo in your neighborhood already? I'd love to hear from you.
