  • "Boo!" sign
  • Treat bag or basket
  • Poem

Poem to Print

The air is cool, the season fall,
Soon Halloween will come to all.

Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore...
Tricky witches at your door.

The spooks are after things to do,
In fact, a spook brought this "Boo" to you!

The excitement comes when friends like you,
Copy this note and make it two.

We'll all have smiles upon our faces,
No one will know who "BOO"ed whose places!

Just two short days to work your spell,
Keep it secret, hide it well.

Please join the fun, the season's here
Just spread these "BOO's" and Halloween cheer.

You Have Been BOOED! Sign

Include a sheet of paper that says: You have been BOOED! Please keep it going by following these directions:

  1. Enjoy your treat.
  2. Place the BOO sign on your front door or visible in a window.
  3. Within two days, make two copies of this note, two treats, and two BOO signs.
  4. Secretly deliver to two neighbors or friends without a BOO.
  5. Keep an eye on nearby front doors to see how far and fast it spreads by Halloween.
