Who wants to be BOOED when they can be SPOOKED?! AM I RIGHT? We needed new You’ve Been Boo-ed Printables since we used my other Booed Signs in our neighborhood multiple years in a row. I whipped up some You’ve Been Spooked Halloween Signs to use and the kids loved them.
As many of you know, I’m always ink cautious, so I went with a spooky white and black design. If you’re also looking for a new Boo printable to use this year, then read on, because you know I’m going to share it with you!
Booing Gift Ideas
My children typically dictate what goodies go inside our You’ve Been Booed Gift Basket. This year inside the pumpkin bucket we put a pumpkin cup, some silly string, wax lips, and DIY Halloween Takeout Boxes full of Halloween candy. I don’t know about you, but if I was a kid and I found this on my porch, I would be hella’ excited!
Printable Halloween Sign
If you’ve never Booed anyone before, it’s simple! First, download the Spooked Printable Signs and instructions at the bottom of this post. You’ll need to print 1 copy of the 1st page and 2 copies of the 2nd.
How to Boo your Neighbors
Now comes the fun part. Make or buy Halloween treats to put into a boo basket, a bag, heck, even inside a pumpkin! Get creative with what you do. You’ll need two of whatever you come up with.
Next, put together your packages. Include one copy of the “You’ve been spooked” instruction sheets and one copy of the “We’ve been spooked!” sign in each.
And here comes my kid’s favorite part: the sneaky delivery! We usually wait until dark and we pile into the car. We determine the neighbor we want to boo, I drive them there, drop them off at the house next door, and then drive down the street a little bit and go dark.
The kids go into ninja mode and stealthily run up to the front door – drop the package, ring the doorbell, and HIGH TAIL IT THE HECK OUT OF THERE!
Usually, they make it to the side of the house and then hunker down until the neighbor has done the “confused looking around until they see the package at their feet” and bring it back inside. Once the door is shut the kids continue in ninja fashion back to the car. Then we do it all over again at the 2nd house.
By the time we get home, they are all hyped up from the adrenaline and are in great moods! They discuss how long they think it will take until we get booed ourselves and get to do it again… because it’s inevitable!
This is a fun Halloween tradition that my kids look forward to every year. If you think you’re up for the challenge and want to spread some Halloween cheer, then download the You’ve Been Spooked Printables and hop to it!
