I really like the Halloween tradition that has developed in recent years--Getting Boo-ed! If you aren't familiar with this new tradition, it is where a neighbor bakes or buys Halloween goodies, packages them up super cute, includes an "I've Been Boo-ed" or "We've Been Boo-ed" sign with instructions on how to continue the game, and then places the gift on another neighbor's doorstep to pass on the fun fall festive atmosphere (say that three times)! It's a great way for your neighborhood to show some love. So, I thought, why not start this out earlier with my middle schooler and her friends? Why not "Boo" each other's lockers???? Fun, right?! So, I decided this would be my first Halloween craft. Here's a pic of the finished project: a Boo Bag with a corresponding locker magnet.
