Have you been booed? What is this new Halloween tradition all about? We have 4 You’ve Been Booed printables that can be used to show a neighbor, friend or family member some Halloween fun and to let them know that you’re thinking about them.
A great way to show that you care and that you’re glad to have them in your life during times when you might not see a whole lot of each other.
How does the You’ve Been Booed game work?
Print one of the You’ve Been Booed printables (each design comes with 2 sheets)
The Boo letter with instructions
The “We’ve Been Booed” sign
Gather up some treats. They can be Halloween treats (candy, snacks, or baked goods), or a cup of pumpkin spice coffee or a bottle of wine. The You’ve Been Booed game does not have to be strictly child focused; it can also act as a fun adult Halloween game! Check out our You’ve Been Boozed printable.
Pick a neighbor, friend or family member to deliver the treats to. Try to make sure they are not at home so you can drop off the treats in secret. Make sure you include the Boo letter and “We’ve Been Booed” sign. Don’t get caught when doing the drop off! The idea is for them to be surprised and wonder who their gifter is!
Your recipient will find their treats and undoubtedly smile. The printed Boo letter will explain to them to tape the “We’ve Been Booed” sign on their front door or window to signal to other neighbors and friends that they have been Booed! Now they become the gifter. So if they get to the person’s house and see this sign is posted, they will know that they’ve already been booed and to move on to another family member or friend.
And the cycle continues! Print two copies of the Boo letter and two copies of the “We’ve Been Booed” sign. Choose two neighbors (or friends) who have not already been Booed and make a Boo Bag for them this Halloween!
