Being a kid is filled with SO much more fun for our kids, isn’t it? I was never “Booed” as a kid and was just as elated as the kids when we received our first “You Have Been Booed” notice. We are gearing up for Halloween in our house, so I pulled together some of my favorite You’ve Been Booed printables and activities. Kids have so much fun during the holiday season. However, parents must be the shepherds of that fun. In fact, there are some creative ways to have fun that can include the entire neighborhood.
What does it mean to get “booed”? Well, it could mean whatever you want really. Think of this as a fun game you play with friends, family members or neighbors.
The rules are simple, you must leave someone with a gift, they can’t know it was from you and it must include a “booed” tag.
The game is like a Halloween version of secret Santa but this one is Halloween-themed. The fun is about to begin so it is time to start thinking about who you want to Boo!

Who to Boo
There is surely a long list of people you would like to get with this game. Hopefully, the trend will continue on and others will get booed too.
Anyone can play this game. You just have to get the chain started.
You can also give kids gifts with the boo. That is how the game started.

However, kids aren’t the only ones who deserve a little gift right at the start of the holiday season. Parents and adults do too. Except the rules can change a bit for adults.
For example, your gift could be alcohol and then you Boo-ze someone instead of boo someone. Or you could get something a little more adult. The possibilities are endless.

Once you have them ready, get a gift and pick someone to boo. You can choose someone in your own community, maybe a friend who lives nearby.
But the best people to get include family or friends. You can choose to play dumb or let the secret out. Either way, let the games commence!
