Spread spOoOoky Halloween fun by Booing your friends and neighbors this year!
I’ve been searching for new ways to celebrate Halloween this year since it turns out that traditional Trick-or-Treating during a pandemic is not my thing… One of the best ideas that I’ve come across is “Boo-ing” friends and neighbors.
Here’s how it works:
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 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,
- Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn
- Cinnamon Chex Mix
- Mini Marshmallows
- Pretzel Sticks
- Candy Eyeballs
- Chocolate chips
- Candy Corn
- Candy Pumpkins
Have fun experimenting with different flavors and candies! Be sure to print out the spooky ingredients list freebie below !

The best part of this tradition is that you can fill your Boo basket with just about anything!
