You’ve Been Boo-ed! Is Your Boo Basket Ready?
Have you been Boo-ed?
Likely not yet, but with October 10 days away, it’s the perfect time to prep your Boo basket & door hanger so you’re ready when the doorbell rings!
Or, you’re wondering what this Boo thing is and why you need a basket & door hanger.
Boo is a ding dong sitch style game played during October mostly in neighborhoods. An avid Boo-er might start the game amongst go-workers or at school.
The idea is that one October night, your doorbell rings and when you open the door, no one is there. On your doorstep, though, is a basket filled with goodies and a sign to hang on your door announcing that you’ve been Boo-ed. By hanging the sign on your door, you’re announcing that no one else can Boo your house. Within the next few days, it’s your job to pass it along.
Traditionally, you make two baskets of goodies & signs for two other houses. After the sun sets, you sneak up to another house without a Boo sign, ring the doorbell & leave the basket. The goal is to be long gone by the time the person opens the door!
I remember sneaking around the neighborhood as a kid, looking for houses to Boo, and I’ve had just as much fun participating as an adult!
We picked up our Boo supplies from Target! We got a few fun treats from the Dollar section – because that’s where it’s at! We also picked up a few snacks & treats for the adults of the household.
It’s a fun way to leave a little surprise for the kids next door & to treat your bestie!
If you’re looking for a cute way to incorporate your Boo sign with your front porch decor or want to share your favorite girl’s night out activity, treat yo’self (or your neighbor!) to one of our new Boo door hangers!
