This past weekend, we decided to spread the Halloween spirit around the neighborhood by booing our neighbors. I’ve been looking forward to doing this all year. Last year when we moved in, the neighborhood was brand new and there were only a handful of finished houses. There wasn’t trick or treating or much else going on to celebrate the holiday. This year, our phase of the neighborhood is pretty much complete. There are tons of Halloween decorations around thanks to a decor contest and there is already a phantom flying around the neighborhood visiting the kids and leaving goodies. It’s been a lot of fun and I know the streets will be filled with littles in their costumes come Halloween night.
AG didn’t really understand what a phantom was, so we decided to just BOO a few of our neighbors. I bought a handful of treats and these cute buckets at Target, dollar spot for the win! I think each little bucket and contents cost about $5-$7. Inside, we did some festive peeps, stickers and a few other crafts.
After AG understood she couldn’t keep all of the goodies, she was excited to deliver them. She didn’t quite get the ding dong ditch concept, she wanted to see her friends get them. Thankfully one set of friends wasn’t home, so we were able to make one a surprise. I love that she remembers everything at this age and is as excited for the holiday as her mama. She ooh’s and ahh’s over all the decorations on our morning runs and is very inquisitive about everything. Next year Luke can get in on the fun and I know it will make everything even more magical.
Below, you’ll find the printables and instructions.
It’s really simple to do and can take just a few minutes to spread the fun! If you’re looking for something the parents would enjoy, check out my you’ve been boozed free printables!

That is such a cute idea! Wish we lived in an actual neighborhood where we could do that!
