What’s the Project? This is a favorite Halloween tradition! Leave a Halloween gift and cute “You’ve Been Booed” tag for your neighbors or friends and then let them pass on the fun! These cute Boo tags are perfect to print and use to “Boo” someone this year!
There are few things that get my kids more excited than the month of October and the fun that comes with it! The candy, the parties, the Trick or Treating-it’s hard to contain the excitement.
One way that we love to celebrate and squeeze in even a little bit MORE fun to the month is to leave someone a fun Halloween gift and a “You’ve Been Booed” gift tag!
My kids LOVE this tradition. Is there anything more fun than hearing a knock at your door and finding a gift basket of Halloween fun on your porch and then getting to doorbell ditch someone else in return with more Halloween fun?
Seriously-Barely. Contained. Excitement.
Which is why year after year we print these cute You’ve Been Booed Gift Tags and doorbell ditch friends in our neighborhood-starting a ripple effect that we hope everyone will enjoy!

How to “Boo” Someone:
If you’re unfamiliar with this tradition, here’s how it works.
Make cookies, fill up a gift basket with Halloween things or find some sort of cute Halloween gift-it really can be anything you want and something you think the person you’re going to Boo will like.
Print out the You’ve Been Booed tags below. Add them to your gift basket.
Then, put the Halloween gift on the porch of the person you are Booing, ring the doorbell and run (so they don’t know who left the gift).
They will open their door, find the gift, and be excited.
Then, as the instructions you are leaving will tell them, it’s their turn to Boo someone else. They will need to make copies of the You’ve Been Booed tags or print new ones, then Boo someone else. This way it spreads and spreads as people Boo each other.
(There’s also a tag that says “We’ve Been Booed” to hang in their window so that people will know that they’ve already been hit and can surprise someone else.”

Attach that first one to your treat or surprise.
Include one of these with the surprise that they can hang on their door and hang one on your door so that people know you have already been booed:
And include these instructions so they know what to do next:
We sometimes like to include an envelope with copies of all of these tags so that it is easy for them to pass it on without having to make their own copies. But that’s just an added bonus if you want to be super helpful because you’re nice like that.
