Halloween is one of my very favorite times of the year. On Halloween night, my neighborhood goes all out. Most homes do the traditional trick or treating, but several go a step further and make it super fun. Many set up haunted houses in their garages and yards, some offer hot chocolate and cider, and my very favorite sets up a whole pirate ship in the front yard, carnival type games and have a fire for roasting marshmallows. Halloween really becomes a neighborhood carnival and it makes the night so much fun!
This year I am going to start the Halloween fun early by delivering BOO Bundles to my neighbors and encourage them to BOO it forward. Mars and Wrigley is even making it super simple by supplying a printable card that explains the instructions and a flag to show that you have already been BOO’d.
I printed the pages on cardstock so they were nice and sturdy and 2 to 1 sheet so they would be a little bit smaller and would fit in my bundles better.
Cut and trim the “We’ve Been Boo’d” sign. Cut and trim the”You’ve Been BOO’d” card. Fold it in half and glue or tape the openings together so you have a flip card. Greeting on the front and instructions on the back. Make sure to include both of these cards with your BOO Bundle. I punched a hole at the top of the cards so I could hang them on my BOO Bundles with a cute little bow.
- Mars Mixed Minis 52 oz.

- Sunkist® 8oz 6pk
- Spider Bucket
- Creepy Plastic Creatures
- Orange Ribbon
- You’ve Beeb BOO’d Printable
There are two people who live in one of the homes I am going to BOO, so everything fits nicely inside the bucket. I start by putting one of the 7UP® cans in the bottom of the bucket, a handful of Mars Mixed Minis and a couple Creepy Plastic Creatures. This is the first layer.
For the second layer, add a can of Sunkist® with another handful of Mars Mixed Minis and a couple more of those creepy plastic creatures. I topped it off with a gross spider, because that is the first thing I want them to see when they open the bucket, and maybe give them a little scare! – That’s not mean, is it? (witch cackle)
I did try to hide the cans of soda, I wanted those to be a fun surprise. I love that you can see the treats and the creepy creatures through the side of the bucket.
One down, but I have more supplies so I am going to make another for the neighbor on the other side!
There are four in this family, so not all of the soda will fit inside the bucket. I started with the Sunkist® 8oz 6pk and carefully removed the cans leaving two in place. I then trimmed the plastic ring so it would be a 4pk instead of a 6pk and carefully added 2 cans of 7UP® into the rings. Then tied it up with the orange ribbon.
Since there are more of them they get more candy too. I filled the bucket with the Mars Mixed Minis and lots of fun creepy plastic creatures. Topping it off again with the ugly black spider. (Witch cackle – I can’t help it!)
We were all so excited to drop these on the porches and run.
So who are you going to BOO?
