Have you heard of this adorable little activity to spread Halloween cheer within your neighborhood? I had seen this concept pop up on a couple of blogs I followed for the countdown last year and completely feel in love with the idea. When I stumbled across a free printable template on Joann’s, I couldn’t resist, especially having moved into a new neighborhood just a few days before October began. This seemed like the perfect opportunity for establishing Halloween excitement in a new place.

I did go a little overboard on the treats I put inside the bag. The instructions say just two treats, but I did more like five (I spent too much time in the Target dollar spot one day…). I also made my own template because I’ve been on a kick with my little spiders and couldn’t resist spreading them throughout our neighborhood.

Love the idea and want to take advantage before the Halloween season is over? You can print the PDF yourself from Joann’s here:

Or if you like the look of my template, you are more than welcome to use that instead:

If you do happen to do this, I would love to see what you come up with or what you gifted! Please be sure to share your experience. Happy “Boo”ing!
