Eek! You’ve Been Booed! Spread spOoOoky Halloween fun by Booing your friends and neighbors this year!
We joined in on this tradition in 2020 when I was searching for new ways to celebrate Halloween since it turns out that traditional Trick-or-Treating during the 2020 pandemic was not my thing… One of the best ideas that I’ve come across is “Boo-ing” friends and neighbors. Thanks to some fun friends, we also learned how exciting it is to open your door to a You’ve Been Booed sign and treat! Hopefully we’ll be trick or treating in person this year but we’re excited to incorporate this tradition once again to celebrate the anticipation of Halloween!
Here are the You’ve Been Booed Instructions, updated for 2021! :
For our Boo bags, we made up a big batch (because of course my kids want to “Boo” everyone they know) of a simple but yummy trail-mix that we dubbed Monster Mix . We split it into individual treat bags, slid in a spooky Monster Mix “recipe” card, and tied it up with some cute ribbons to attach the “You’ve been Booed” instructions and window sign. We tried our best to surprise our friends, but it turns out that 2 excited kids and an unimpressed baby at your doorstep don’t make for the quietest delivery or getaway 😆.
Monster Mix Ingredients
We made this trail-mix extra sweet for Halloween; here’s what we put in ours,
