You've been boo'ed!

{hello} friends! I'm Kierste, from Simply Kierste, and I am DELIGHTED to be here and a part of Spooktacular September! I just love these eighteen25 girls! On my blog I post creative ideas for diy crafts, home & family, organization, holidays, recipes, and more! I believe that it's the simple things that make all the difference, and I love to share my tips on how to do that!
 
One of our most favorite family traditions is to "boo" our neighbors and friends a few weeks before Halloween. We make up two or three plates of yummy treats, print off cute boo signs and instructions, and then sneak out into the night dressed in black clothing (okay...it's usually our pajamas, but we pretend we're totally undercover), and secretly deliver them.

My kids LOVE putting the treats on the porch, ringing the doorbell, and then taking off running, trying not to get caught. We leave the car running, a door slightly ajar, and ready to leave as fast as we can by our already planned escape route. We always end up in gales of laughter, and we talk about it for weeks. It is just so fun to do together, and then to watch as the fun spreads around the neighborhood!!
 
Here's how you can start the "boo" tradition in your own neighborhood!

{SUPPLIES}
-boo tags, letter, and sign for each house you're delivering to
CLICK THE LINKS BELOW TO DOWNLOAD THE FREE PRINTABLES!
-treats for each house ( I used take out boxes)
-washi tape or double stick tape
-ribbon
 
 

{DIRECTIONS}
1. Print out the boo tags on cardstock.
2. Make yummy treats and package them! I love using these cute takeout boxes to deliver the treats, so I used washi tape to adhere it to the side. If you're using a plate. clear bag, or mason jar, you can use punch a hole in the corner of the tag and attach it with ribbon instead.
3. Print out a boo letter and boo sign to go with each plate of treats.
4. Deliver them all secretly to a friend or neighbor...be careful, don't get caught! Smiling face (black and white)
