I had never done this before I moved to our fabulous neighborhood in The Woodlands, Texas. The first year we were "boo'ed" my girls couldn't wait to "boo" a neighbor. The object is to secretly knock on a door, leave the treat, and quietly run away. I wish I would have recorded the giggles that came running past me after they knocked and then went to hide. It was so much fun. I hope you have as much fun as we do each year. If you snap a few pics, post them on our facebook page. We'd love to share in your fun! Enjoy the free download.Read More
My kids have so much fun making these candy bag toppers and coming up with creative ideas to fill each bag. I used clear flap bags that you can get at any craft supply store. I attached them to the bags with double sided tape but you can use staples as well.
HOW TO CREATE YOUR TOPPERS:
1. Purchase the entire set of 5 designs in one listing at the ETSY store.
2. Print each PDF on bright white card stock paper.
3. Fill each bag with treats of your choice.
4. I use double-sided tape to attach the toppers to the bag but you can staple them as well.
Here are some of the ideas to use in each bag. I'd love to hear some other ideas to fill each bag!
Witches Warts—Chocolate Chips, Raisins, Chocolate Covered Raisins, M&M's
Scarecrow Scabs—Cereal Flakes, Rice Cakes
Ghost Droppings—Marshmallows, Yogurt Covered Raisins
Vampire Blood—Hot Tamales, Red Gummy Candy, Red M&M's, Dried Cranberries
Jack-O-Lantern Teeth—Candy Corn, Carrots, Cheetos, Pumpkin Seeds
We used these bags to put in our "Boo your neighbor" treat buckets. We love boo'ing. Here is a link to a free printable so you can boo too!
