Our Suburbia Membership is complete! We were BOOed!!
I puffy heart our new street so much. It’s like a micro-neighborhood where we all know each other, and apparently do fun things like bringing goodies to each other’s house in the darkness of night to celebrate Halloween.
Man, I am such a 34 year old suburban mom who loves stretchy pants.
Not familiar with the Boo? Basically, you drop goodies off at your neighbors’ homes (usually 2) and leave a note asking them to pass their own fun “boo” along to two more neighbors with a copy of the note.
Once you’ve been booed, you tape a note to your door or window to let others know not to boo you again.
(Sidenote: Next year, I’m kicking off the Boozed fun. Because booze.)
Our Boo that we delivered to two neighbors was super fun and easy to put together. It’s a Smore’s Boo!
I started with a large, decorative Mason jar from Target (how the world’s most basic sentence begins), but you could use any large clear glass (or plastic) container.
I stacked 2 packages of graham crackers on the bottom, then lined the sides with mini Hershey’s chocolate bars.
Finally, we stuffed 2 bags of marshmallows (we used the square stacker kind) on top of all that goodness.
Then I painted a simple ghost face with acrylic black paint on the jar over the marshmallows. I rolled the printed letter and sign and tied them to the jar. (We got our letter and sign here.)
Just for an extra touch of whimsy, I added some gold stickers I had leftover from another project to the lid.
We did huge jars and lots of stuff inside because we delivered to homes full of hungry boys, but it’s easy to scale this down to a smaller size. Personal size s’more boos could be great for co-workers!
The final step was to have Kendall and Scott run up and down the street as quietly as possible (so not actually very quiet), deliver, ring the bell, and RUN!
