It has only been in the last few years that I had even heard of a boo bucket. It appeared on our front doorstep and the kids had so much fun with it, I knew I had to put a printable together and share in the fun.

What Does Getting BOOed Mean?
It is a fun way to surprise your friends or neighbors with a Halloween boo bucket without them knowing who it's from.
There is a printable to include in the bucket. Your neighbor displays the printable on their door or window. This gives the other in your neighborhood and idea of who has already been part of the fun. It also encourages them to continue the neighborhood fun. It's all kinds of fun and anonymous.
What is a Boo Bucket?
A boo bucket is simply a bag, bucket, or container holding some Halloween treats for your neighbor.
Fill the boo bucket with fun treats and goodies. We have put together a list of some of our favorite things to include in our buckets. Tailor the bucket to the neighbor you are surprising.
What should I add to a boo bucket?
It's important to know a little bit about your friend or neighbor you are going to surprise before deciding what to include.
- Do they have children in that family?
- How old are their kids?
- Do they have any allergies?
Once you know that, then the rest is fun.
I love to include fun Halloween items like:
- Glow in the dark bouncy balls
- Spooky Stickers
- Halloween Coloring Books
- Light-up bracelets
- Halloween stamps
- Stretchy skeletons
The key is to remember to have fun filling your Halloween bucket. Do not feel like you have to spend too much money. I found all my items at the local dollar store. It is also fun to add a few Halloween craft ideas for kids, Halloween Bingo, or Halloween coloring pages too.
Booed Sign and Instructions
Once you have your sign and instruction printable, it is fun to cut them out for your gift receiver.
Display the printable on the front door or window.
It has instructions on how to continue the fun Halloween tradition.
The Instructions Include:
- You have your boo bucket
- You've filled it with Halloween treats customized for the family or friends you are planning to boo
- You've printed out the boo letter printable
Now it's time to sneak up on your neighbor's doorstep, leave the goodies, ring the doorbell and run. And that is how to surprise someone!
