Attached to the handle of each take-out goodie box are the following instructions (printed on orange construction paper):
You have been “Boo’d”! Please keep it going by following these directions:
1. Enjoy your treat!
2. Place the BOO sign on your front door or so it’s visible in a window.
3. Within 2 days, make 2 treats, 2 copies of this note, and 2 BOO signs.
4. Secretly deliver to 2 neighbors without a BOO.
5. Keep an eye on nearby front doors to see how far and fast it spreads by Halloween!
I cut these out with crimping shears, affixed an eyelet and a little candy embellishment to each, and then tied them to the handles using raffia (which I had saved from some packaging). Lastly, I clipped on a short length of "Trick or Treat" ribbon with a small black clip. Now, we wait and see who plays along.
