How to make an epic Halloween BOO basket – plus get free printables

Show your neighbors how much you appreciate them with a boo basket!

Neighbors do so much for us. They have keys to our homes in case of emergency, look after our kids, and gather the mail when we’re out of town. So in appreciation of these friends, here is a really fun activity to start in your neighborhood!


Here’s how it works

Print the “We’ve Been Booed” and the directions sheets below (six spooky designs to choose from!). Then, create two boo baskets or kits. You can even cater each basket to each family. Do they love to have bonfires in the backyard? Make a s’mores-themed basket. Are they movie lovers? Stuff it with popcorn and gummy bears. Pails, baskets, ice buckets and plastic pumpkins all work fine for stuffing your Halloween goodies.
