One of the best things about holidays are the opportunities for fun with our kids. Last year a couple weeks before Halloween we were surprised and delighted to find a basket of delicious and spooky goodies on our front doorstep.
We’d been “Booed”!
That set off a fun wave of “Boos!” throughout the neighborhood. This year I decided to kick off the fun!
I took the kids to Target and we scoured the dollar section for the best Boo Basket goodies. I spent a grand total of $7 for each Boo Basket and we went home to put the baskets together.
Now, the point of the Boo baskets is to foster neighborhood unity/appreciation and have a little fun so you’ll need to make sure to include this sign and set of rules in your basket. I love this one from Happiness is Homemade.
We have a new neighbor right across the street from us so we broke one of the rules (the Drop off and Run one), and we took the treats over and introduced ourselves.
One reason I love this activity so much is because it only takes just a few minutes and a few dollars to do something nice and fun for your neighbors. Hopefully, the neighbors will pass along the fun and you can watch the whole neighborhood come alive with the “Booing!” spirit!
