One of my kids favorite Halloween traditions (besides trick or treating, of course) is to doorbell ditch our friends and neighbors with a plateful of goodies. Since this year’s Halloween might turn out to be a bit different thanks to current events (hello, COVID-19), we wanted to make sure that some of our regular traditions still happen. Thankfully, this activity is totally physical and social distancing friendly. *wink*
In case you haven’t heard about the idea behind “You’ve Been BOO’ed”, let me share a little about it. First, you make some treats (or buy some) and then you print off two copies of the FREE printable I’m sharing in this post. Then you choose two neighbors/friends to drop the treats and a BOO’ed printable off to (one of each).
The fun of this is that it’s done anonymously and it’s a great way to spread a little non-spooky joy to those around you. The last thing to remember about this activity is to not put your own BOO’ed sign in your window or on your door until after you’ve BOO’ed your friends/neighbors. You don’t want anyone to know it was you!

Here are some ideas of goodies to drop off to those you are BOOing:
- homemade treats (cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc)
- store-bought treats
- roll of refrigerated cookie dough
- bag of candy
- small activity books
- a game (Halloween BINGO, scavenger hunt, etc)
- Halloween magnets (like the ones I shared earlier this month)
- bag of fake spider webbing
- can of bottled fruit (such as jam or applesauce)
- bottle of juice or boxed juice (Capri Sun, Honest Kids, etc)
- mini pumpkins and paint
*Some of these suggestions would also make great non-candy great alternatives for Halloween!*
As you can see, you don’t have to give a traditional sweet treat! There are so many fun things you could give to the lucky friends/neighbors you decide to BOO.
