Halloween Boo Bag Printables

We've halfway to Halloween night, but around here the spooky fun begins long before October 31. There are just way too many Halloween crafts and activities and parties to enjoy -- and we put in way too much effort on our Halloween costumes to show them off on just one night -- so we like to celebrate Halloween all month long!

One of our favorite ways to celebrate Halloween is to Boo our friends.  If you've never done it before, it's a lot of fun.  You prepare a bag (the Boo Bag) of treats, attach some instructions to the bag, and leave it on your friends' and neighbors' front porches.  The fun lies in the "leave it" part -- you have to leave your Boo Bags, ring the doorbell and get out before someone answers the door and sees you.  The kids love dressing up in their darkest clothing, sneaking up on their friends, and running away like they've got dogs on their tails. They've been caught a couple of times; frankly, with all the giggling and laughing they do as they run away, I'm surprised they aren't caught 100 percent of the time.

There are many templates for Boo Bag instructions around the web, but I found most of them too cartoon-ish for my taste.  This year I decided to make my own (using PicMonkey).  Feel free to download them and print them out for your own Boo Bags!  They look great printed in color or black and white.  Enjoy!
