If you haven’t been Boo’d, you’re missing out on a fun Halloween tradition. This is a great way to start off the holiday season and strengthen ties with neighbors.
A Boo-Gram is a mysterious note you leave on a neighbor’s door with a bag of treats. The note is usually a poem. You also leave a large Boo! sign with the note and goodies. The Boo! sign tells other neighbors that this house has already been hit. If people participate, by Halloween you’ll see Boo’s lining up and down the street on all the doors in the neighborhood!
You choose whatever you want to give for treats. To keep the chain going, when you get Boo’d, you need to Boo one or two other neighbors.
Half the fun is ringing the doorbell and running away! Kids love to get in on this and it’s even more fun when they choose which neighbors to Boo and pick out some of the treats.
Don’t wait for someone else to begin the Boo! It’s easy to start your own and your neighbors will thank you!
Here is the link for a ready made BOO sign and poem. Just print, have your kids color, fill a bag with treats and off you go. http://www.theborkowskis.com/halloween/halloweenbooing.pdf
