You've Been Boo'd! (FREE download!)

Last October a friend at work was talking about how she had been Boo'd and how fun it was.  Been Boo'd??  What's that?
She went on to tell me that someone left a plate of treats on her doorstep with a sheet of paper that said, "You've Been Boo'd!"  She then returned the favor to someone else.

What's so fun and special about that?  Well, it's a ding-dong and ditch thing!  

Essentially, you make a plate of treats, copy the sheet of instructions and the "We've Been Boo'd"  sign, go to someone's house in your neighborhood, leave the plate and papers on the doorstep, ring the doorbell, and run!

Two weeks before Halloween last year, Nutty, Tottie and I went out and Boo'd two neighbors.  My girls LOVED the ding-dong and ditch part of this!  Because we started it in our neighborhood, we did not put a "We've Been Boo'd" sign on our door right away.  We were then Boo'd by another neighbor and got to Boo two more neighbors!  My girls were so excited to do it 4 times and can't wait to do it again somewhere in our neighborhood this year!

Have you ever done anything like this in your neighborhood?  If you want to start doing this in your neighborhood with your kids, you can download the "We've Been Boo'd" sign and the "You've Been Boo'd" instruction sheet by clicking on the links!

  1. I have 3 daughters and I always loved this time of year. Fall colors, Halloween, a few birthdays and the annual "Boo"ing of our neighbors. It is a great way for younger kids to get in the spirit and learn about the neighborhood and who has kids their same age etc. Great article
