Saturday night we got Boo’d. Have you heard of that? I am not sure where it originated but Hallmark got on the bandwagon and we received a bag full of candy with a cute poem inside encouraging us to “boo” someone else. Since the ‘Boo bag’ has been Isaac’s sidekick since Saturday night we could not reuse the bag. My thriftiness would not allow me to go buy a new Hallmark bag.
What you do you is take a bag of treats and go to someone’s door and play ding-dong-ditch and leave a bag of loot for them along with a ‘Boo” poem.
Since I got a bunch of free candy today from CVS, I decided to make up a few “Mini Boo Bags”. All you need is a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper, a glue stick, ribbon and a hole punch and you have yourself a mini boo bag. I will post a tutorial tomorrow.
But I used the Hallmark’s poem part which read…
This sweet surprise is called a “boo”!
You’ll never know exactly who
brought treats and then ran off unseen
to brighten up your Halloween!
It’s twice the good luck if you go
and “boo” two other folks you know
Pack up a ghost sign
treats and gifts,
and add a poem just like this.
Pick out a house
and sneak up close.
(Make sure its windows have no ghost
that tells you clearly
“We’ve been Boo’d!”
It’s best to visit someplace new.)
Knock fast on someone’s door — then run!
Make sure you’re never seen! It’s fun!
And once they get your gifts and food…
they’ll know for sure that
they’ve been Boo’d!
So here is Isaac on his first “Boo-venture.” We plan on doing one every night this week as part of our family time. Isaac thinks it is the coolest thing in the world and has a little list of all the people he wants to “Boo!.”
