Long gone are the days of toilet papering the neighborhood houses for Halloween fun. These days the new tradition of BOO’ing takes the place of the horrible Halloween pranking of my generation. I’m so glad my children have a fun, yet kind way to have some Halloween adventure!
Have you heard of BOO’ing yet? BOO’ing is the practice of creating a Halloween treat and surprising a neighbor with the goodies. The hope is that each person BOO’d will #BOOItForward and BOO another neighbor.
Want to Boo It Forward in your neighborhood? Here’s a fun and simple way to share the BOO’ing fun.
Create a BOO Mason Jar
- pint glass jars
- etching cream
- narrow duck tape
- letter stickers
Using the narrow duck tape, make a rectangle around the BOO.
Etch the glass. Fill in the rectangle and over the BOO letters with etching cream. Place the jar on a paper plate or paper towel, and use a disposable plastic knife for easy clean up.Make sure to read the instructions on the back of your etching cream. Let the cream sit for the specified amount of time on the back of the etching cream jar (I find adding another 3-5 minutes creates a better look). Rinse the cream off, then remove the stickers and tape. Now wash the jar throughly.
Add yummy treats:
Wrap the string around the jar and tie on a fun straw.
