11 Free "You've Been Boo'ed" Printables

Three Halloween candy buckets

The Spruce / Lara Antal

 Have you been boo'ed? "You've Been Boo'ed" is a fun Halloween tradition where you secretly deliver treats to your neighbor and ask them to pass on the fun. It's a great way to bond with the neighbors you know and to get to know the ones that you don't.

To start the You've Been Boo'ed tradition, you'll need a few printables to start the fun. You'll need a You've Been Boo'ed letter, You've Been Boo'ed sign, and a We've Been Boo'ed sign. The letter explains how the activity works and the signs are for the front doors to let people know when they've been boo'ed.

Below you'll find over a dozen sets of these printables all in a different style. Some of the You've Been Boo'ed sets also include tags, cards, and other printables to make it more fun. You'll also need to include some treats when you boo someone. This can include candy, baked goods, or fun Halloween toys and trinkets. You can put your treats in any type of container and some of the websites below have some great ideas.

Tip: For other fun Halloween activities, try pumpkin carving or throw a Halloween party, and don't forget to plan your Halloween costume!
