Halloween BOO’ing Kit Tutorial & Free Printable

It’s one of my favorite times of the year, Halloween!  I love the feeling of this month, the pumpkin picking, the Halloween parties, trick-or-treating, everything!  It is such a fun time of year, so let’s make a Booing Kit.

I have started another fun tradition for this time of year, BOO’ing.  I recently started hearing about this fun way of sharing the Halloween spirit with friends, family, and neighbors and now I’m hooked.  It is so much fun for everyone involved!

Halloween Booing Kit Tutorial

What is a Booing Kit

So what exactly is BOO’ing?  You create a fun little package of candy, Halloween-themed items, and a cute note saying “You’ve Been BOO’D”. Then you leave it anonymously on someone’s front door.  

Now that person has been Boo’d! Check out the BOO Kit I created below and download the free BOOing Printable.

How to create a booing kit

It was easy to make a booing kit, Grab some of your favorite treats, and the mommy perk is that I was able to pick everything up in one trip to Walmart.  Saving time while building fun traditions makes for a great day. 

What Supplies You Need to Create A “You’ve Been BOO’D” Suprise

Plastic Pumpkin
Piece of Styrofoam
Wood Dowels 
Glue Gun
Mini cans of soda in the adorable Halloween cans.
Bag of mixed mini Candy Bars

Once you’ve grabbed all your supplies, it’s time to have fun building your kit.

Start by lining the bottom of the pumpkin with the Halloween soda cans.

Next, take your piece of Styrofoam and cut it to fit into your pumpkin, resting on top of the soda cans.

Cover the foam with a bunch of mini candies.

Next, heat up the glue gun, grab your dowels and pick out which candies and how many pieces you want on each stick.

Put a line of glue on the dowel and stick a piece of candy onto it.  Hold it for a few seconds while the glue cools, then keep going down the line.

Once your candy sticks are done, stick them into the foam within the pumpkin, wherever you’d like.

Wala you have a delicious BOO kit, but it’s not quite finished.

You need to print out this fun “You’ve been BOO’d” greeting card along with the “We’ve been BOO’d” sign.

That’s it, simple to make and fun to give.

We decided to BOO my niece who just got here from Brazil.  This is her first time in the United States and has never experienced Halloween before.  I think getting a cute surprise pumpkin filled with a perfect combination of sweets and soda will make any teen excited for the upcoming holiday.  But shhh her BOO’ing is a secret!

Now that you’ve created an awesome BOO kit and BOO’d an unsuspecting friend.  What are you going to do with the leftover candy?  While it probably would have been devoured within 24 hours at my house.  I wanted to do something different with it.  So I made up some of my hubby’s favorite Candy Bar Brownies.
