Does your neighborhood "Boo" each other? Not sure what that even means? Read on...I'm sure you'll be excited to Boo too!
I'd always wanted to live in a neighborhood that booed each other, so I was beyond thrilled when we opened the front door of our new home one October morning to discover two plastic pumpkins packed full of treats and goodies for my kiddos. Attached was a note instructing us to place a "We've Been Booed" sign in our front window (so as to alert the other neighbors that we had already been booed) and to pack up two baskets of goodies along with a copy of the sign and deliver them secretly to two other neighbors who hadn't been booed yet.
My boys were SO excited to sneak around the neighborhood after dark to deliver our treats to unsuspecting friends. The best part was watching how far the "Boo" spread up and down the street, around the block, and even over to the next neighborhood area. Signs popped up on every window, and kids eagerly chatted and tried to guess who had booed who. Such fun!
This year I decided to personalize it a little bit by creating my own "You've Been Booed" printables, so that we can track just how far our initial boo love reaches. I can't wait to see my signs up on everyone's windows and doors, and I thought that you might like to join in the fun too!
Have fun and happy booing! If you're looking for a cute printable and customizable Halloween invitation, check out my sister Kari's cute design over at Eight By Five.
I also wanted to thank everyone for their response to yesterday's Pay-it-Forward post. I still have a couple more spots available if anyone wants to receive a free handmade treat from me - just leave a comment on the post! Also, I promise that the next free giveaway will be a "reader appreciation" only, so no blog will be required to join in that one. Look for it soon! ♥
