You've been booed

When I was younger our neighborhood would do the "You've been Booed" tradition. I thought that was a lot of fun, to get door bell ditched with treats and then leave treats at two neighboors door's and door bell ditch them. It really kicked off the season and got us excited for Halloween!
With the help of my mom we put together a cuter "you've been booed" sign than the one that was passed around when I was a kid.

The sign explains it really well but i'll explain it just in case anyone's confused.

-Start by printing off two copies of the "you've been booed" and two copies of "we've been booed" signs.
-get two treats, could be a basket of halloween treats, something homemade or just a candy bar and leave on the door step of two neighbors.
-tape the "you've been booed" sign to their door. with the "we've been booed" sign behind it, but make sure they can see it so they know there's a paper behind the front one.
-leave the treats at the door, ring the bell, and run!

Have so much fun!

  5. This sounds like an awesome opportunity for "older" kids to get involved (they often feel left out at Halloween).

  8. I like these signs! Thanks for sharing. My wife and I will have to use a couple of these around the neighborhood. "Booing" people was a family tradition growing up and my wife and I have been carrying on the tradition in our neighborhood. We found a cute sign and started "booing" people last week and it's been spreading through the neighborhood.

    Here's the one we used: http://www.daddylifestyle.com/2013/10/weve-been-booed.html
