Boo Your Neighbors Halloween Activity

Monday, October 16, 2017

It's almost time for Halloween and who doesn't love an excuse to ding dong ditch?  If you live in the midwest, you might be familiar with May Day.   On May 1st, kids assemble little baskets full of popcorn and little treats.  Then they drop them on doorsteps, ring the doorbell and run! This activity is similar and a great way to create community in your neighborhood and spread a little joy this Halloween season!

To start this tradition, all you need to do is assemble some special treats in a bag, lunch sack or tote. Print off the downloadable copy below, print 2 copies and then choose 2 neighbors or friends to "boo".  

You will want to wear your running shoes because you will drop the treat bag on their door step, ring the bell and run.  You might want to check and make sure they are home first because it's most fun if they find it while you are dashing away.

Once, you deliver the boo treats, the recipient should copy 2 additional sheets, hang the "we've been boo-ed" sign on their door and then boo 2 more people.  Hopefully, everyone will be boo-ed in time for Halloween!  

Your boo treat might include:

The options are endless.  Make sure you include enough for each child in the family that you are gifting the bag to!  If you have extra supplies, you can put them in your trick or treat bucket for trick or treaters who might need a non-candy option.  

It's so fun to both boo and get boo-ed.  When you hear that doorbell, you better dash and see if you can find who "boo-ed" you.  Leave a comment and let me know if you do this tradition in your neighborhood.  I promise you it's so fun, it's frightening.

Happy Halloween!  Now go boo your neighbors!


Until next time, keep on keeping on with a joyful, faith-filled life.  #tribekoko
