Hearing my kids squeal and laugh are the memories I cherish forever.  A lot of the squealy having fun moments centered around getting Booed during the month of October.

If you’ve never received a “You’ve Been Booed” paper and treats or looking to start a new tradition among your neighbors or friends, let me fill you in on this Halloween fun.

The first part of the post will go over starting this fun Halloween tradition and booing someone.

You’ve Been Booed Tradition Info

So, what is booing your neighbor??

The basis of a neighborhood boo is to spread treats and cheer to others in secret.  It is an easy custom and a fun way that the whole family can get involved.

If you don’t have this fun tradition in your neighborhood yet, you should start it! Booing is a great way for the whole neighborhood to get excited for Halloween time.

Usually, one neighbor starts the fun activity of Booing at the beginning of October by leaving some treats and printable signs at someone’s front door. 

It takes quite a few weeks for the boos to spread throughout the neighborhood and for everyone to get their own boo basket and this is how it works.  One person puts together two Boo baskets filled with treats, simple decor, favors, etc, and puts a boo sheet into each of them.  

The boo sheets are two free boo printables (download button below). The first sheet states “You’ve Been Booed” and outlines the directions of how to proceed.

The second boo sheet will say something like “We’ve Been Booed” and this is the sheet the recipient will hang where others can see.  Like in a window, on a door, on an outside decoration, etc. 

It just shows other neighbors that you’ve already been booed (AKA has gotten a secret treat), so they will know to skip your house and give it to someone who does not have a boo sign in the window.

The really fun part of this tradition is the secrecy and trying to guess who booed you.  My kids loved guessing who they thought it was and sometimes they did figure it out.

The other fun part is leaving it on a doorstep and not getting caught.  The kids have so much fun coming up with a plan on whose house they are going to boo and waiting for it to get dark. 

Then they’ll sneak up and leave it on the doorstep and knock (or ring the doorbell) and run to take cover. (I’d recommend rotating kids so each family member can have a chance to leave a boo bag!

Yes, good old doorbell ditching with permission!  I admit, the crazy presence of all the Ring Doorbells and security camera puts a damper on this fun but finding a place where it won’t be seen can be a fun challenge.  Or parents can just not let their kids see who it was!

Once the recipients get their Boo bucket, they have two days to print out the You’ve Been Booed printables, put together new buckets, and deliver them.  Then watch for all the boo sheets go up in windows all throughout the month!

You’ve Been Boo’d Bucket Ideas

The small treats you give to your neighbors can be super simple items from the Dollar Store to homemade Fall or Halloween decor.  The Dollar Store has great plastic Halloween buckets or I personally like giving the large Halloween candy bin. 

Especially if you trick or treat with little ones and leave candy outside, the Dollar Tree bowls are great to use in case you have some rugrats in your neighborhood that steal the entire bowl.

Some great ideas to get at the Dollar Tree or Target:

I also like to make a few things to add that special touch!

Making a cute Halloween calories don’t count candy jar is quick and cheap!  (container from Dollar Tree!)

I few fun things to make if you are crafty, are a pumpkin sign, a glitter jack-o-lantern, Halloween ornaments, or DIY Fall mugs.

Then when you are done booing, you can start sending out You’ve Been Gobbled treats!
