This time of year is fun for kids of all ages. It’s also filled with treats full of sugar and preservatives. We thought it would be fun to have a You’ve Been Booed version filled with healthy treats to offset all the sweet treats that come with Halloween.

We love leaving gifts for neighbors and friends. These cute “Boo” fruits are sure to brighten any child’s (or adult’s) day!

Our kids love this tradition! It not only allows them to be creative, but it also teaches them to give to others. There’s nothing more fun for a kid than getting a knock at the door and discovering these fun fruits to get into the Halloween spirit.

What does You’ve Been Booed Mean?

A Halloween “Boo” is a gift or treat that is left anonymously by a friend, family member or neighbor at your front door.

Once you’ve been Booed, simply hang the “We’ve Been Booed sign” on your front door or front window to let everyone know that you’ve received your Halloween surprise.

When putting together a You’ve Been Booed gift, be sure to include additional printables so that the family you’ve booed can boo another family.

If you have a neighborhood email list or Facebook Group, be sure to share this post so other families can participate in the fun!
