It has only been in the last few years that I had even heard of a boo bucket. It appeared on our front door step 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 its from.
There is a printable to include in the bucket. They can tape it to their door or window. That shares with the rest of the neighborhood that they have been booed. It also encourages them to continue the neighborhood fun. Its all kinds of fun and totally anonymous.
What is a boo bucket?
A boo bucket is simply a bag, bucket or container holding some Halloween treats for your neighbor.
What should I add to a boo bucket?
Its 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.
Do I include the boo letter printable?
Once you have your sign and instruction printable, it is fun to cut them out for your gift receiver.
Then, tape the "We've been booed" sign to the front door.
It has the instructions for 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 its time to sneak up on your neighbor's doorstep, leave the goodies, ring the doorbell and run. And that is how to surprise someone!
