This Halloween things are more than likely going to be different! I have no clue how we are celebrating yet. It makes me a little sad for my kids, well, Millie at least- Clark doesn’t anything about Halloween yet! I have gotten in the Halloween spirit this year! I started early and have made a cute cake, threw a Ghouls Only Tea Party, and cute Ghost Pops!
I have seen people make Boo Bags before for their neighbors and friends and thought it was so cute and a great way to spread some holiday cheer! Since we more than likely won’t be seeing a lot of friends this Halloween I decided to make “You’ve Been Boo’d!” Bags for our friends. There were easy and fun to make. It really took no time at all. I created printables for the bags too! You are welcome to download and use for your Boo Bags!
There are SO many ways you can make these. There is no right or wrong. I have seen extravagant ones and simpler ones. It is the thought that counts! Some ideas of what to put in the bags include:
- Small toys
- Snacks (goldfish, fruit snacks, etc)
- Drinks (alcoholic for adult bags)
- Glow sticks
- Homemade treats (cookies, cupcakes, etc)
You can literally do WHATEVER you want or you think your friends would like! Keep in mind peoples food allergies or restrictions when making them too!
Since our kids are small -3 and under -I made mine for littles. I included: Candy, Goldfish, vampire teeth, halloween notebook, and a sticker sheet. I got most things at the Target Dollar Spot. I used Orange Bags to put everything in and topped with white tissue paper. I made the “You’ve Been Boo’d” printables (free to print out and use!). I taped the printable on the bag and delivered to friends! Super easy and the kids have seemed to enjoy them. It is a simple gesture that can brings some Spooky Cheer to your friends and family.
