In the spirit of good fun,
it’s time to start Boo-ing your friends and neighbors!
Booing is an American contribution to Halloween which can be traced back to the 1980s. It’s a ding-dong-ditch, knock-and-run FUN tradition of surprising your neighbor with a fall treat. Many people are still in the dark about this Halloween tradition, so to shed a little light on the subject, these are the rules:
Print TWO ‘Boo’ printables along with this poem:
Halloween is drawing near,
But don’t let this spook bring you fear.
We’ve left these treats just for you.
Enjoy them please; we hope you do!
Then before two days have come and passed
Spread the fun to make it last.
Choose two friends to give treats to,
Then they’ll be BOOED just like you!
Assemble your treat bags and print your poems, then stealthily deliver them to your friends and neighbors in drop-ring-run fashion. You’ll want to remain anonymous, so try not to get caught!
But, if you’re like me, and you’re just dying to have a little Fall festive fun with your neighbor, feel free to breeze right past all of this mummy-jumbo and download your FREE Printable to use however you wish, muAH-ha-hah-haaaaa!!
This ‘Boo’ design is formatted to print four to a standard US sheet (8.5″x11″). Each individual tag measures approximately 3.5″x5″.
I’d love to see how you use your BOO printables! Tag @Custom_Maed on IG or shoot me a photo for a chance to be featured online. I can’t wait to see what you do! I’m sure it’ll be ‘wicked ghould’! 👻🎃😂
1. Print the FREE BOO PRINTABLE and the poem. Printing on heavy white card stock is recommended.
2. Cut them out. I apologize in advance about the decorative curves! They’re wicked fun though, right?!
3. Punch a hole at the top and string ribbon through, or use as you wish.

Have yourself a wicked good – and SAFE – Halloween!
All the Best,
