YOU’VE BEEN BOOED- A FAVORITE HALLOWEEN TRADITION

Well before “booing” became popular, delivering treats anonymously to neighbors with a “You’ve Been Booed” sign was our family’s favorite Halloween activity.

My mom would load all 7 of us kids up in the station wagon and we’d take turns leaving goodies on porches. We loved watching the Phantom spread. By the time Halloween came, most of the neighborhood had been booed. 

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN TO BOO 

Have you ever been booed? Like when you hear a knock on the front door and open it to find a Halloween treat?

And then you get to return the favor by choosing someone to “Boo!” by leaving a treat anonymously.

Boo-ing neighbors has become really popular in the last few years. It’s an easy way to spread some cheer throughout your neighborhood.

HOW TO BOO YOUR FRIENDS OR NEIGHBORS

1. Print off 2 copies of the Friendly Halloween Phantom Ghost poem-get the free download them at the end of the post! 

2. Prepare 2 sets of Halloween goodies. (Treat ideas below!) And attach the printables to your goodies.

3. Put the treats on the door step, ring or knock the door, and then run! The trick is to not get caught.

4. Those who have received the Phantom should put this Phantom sign on their door, so that the Phantom won’t stop again. Watch the Phantom Ghost spread through your neighborhood!

YOU’VE BEEN BOOED TREAT IDEAS

 

Your Phantom treats can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like. You may want to leave only store-bought treats if you don’t know your neighbors well (would you want to eat a homemade treat from a stranger?) But if your neighborhood is close, then homemade goodies are great, too!

Here’s a few ideas of some of our favorite treats to leave: 

Easy Packaging Ideas 

Package any of these treats in one of these brown kraft gift bags and tie with some ribbon!
