You've Been "Boo"ed!

Clip to ScrapBook #1

A few years ago I was in a school that did this for the month of October. On two teachers' doors a secretive bag was left with a note. Inside the bag was an inexpensive gift (mine was a pair of "pumpkin" socks) and a little card that said you had been "boo"ed. I never knew who left my bag but I was asked to surprise two other teachers and leave the note and a gift. I would like to do this in my new school this year. Does anyone know of this game and have a copy of the "boo" message? Thanks in advance.

We do this every year at my school, and it is so much fun! I wish I still had that poem to share with you. I hope someone has it out there.

Several years ago, at a previous school site, we had a teacher who did this activity through his church. I thought it sounded like fun. I would love to get a copy of the verse too. I hope that someone answers our plea.

I purchased a kit from Hallmark. It comes 2 tissue sheets, 1 door sign, 1 gift bag, and 1 poem sheet for $2.99. I only purchased 1, but will probably purchase another one to start it at school.

The poem: (from the card included)
Quote:
You've been Boo'd! So spread some fun
around the neighborhood -
Just fill this bag with goodies
and surprises, if you would,

Add the ghost sign and this poem,
stuff some tissue in,
Pack them up and then head out -
you're ready to begin!

Find a house without a sign
that tells you "We've been Boo'd!"
Then leave this bag to put them
in a Halloween-y mood.

Ring the bell, then run away
before you can be seen -
It's one fun way to celebrate
a happy Halloween!
I think I also saw the bags at Wal-Mart last year.

Here is a website with the same poem and another way of doing it:

Neat idea.

Any creative person out there that can re-create this idea to Thanksgiving. Some sort of You've Been Turkey'd?

Our Thanksgiving is about 3 weeks away and our staff could use a morale pick me up.

I didn't read all of the links, but I was boo'ed 4 times last year. Someone had started a post about this last year, and had mentioned that you can give the recipient a ghost to put on their door so you know who hasn't been boo'ed yet. As much as I enjoyed all the goodies last year, I think it might have been better to have a way to mark those who haven't been chosen yet in order to pass the fun around.

I love the thought that went into this. It is a great way to celebrate. I am trying to adapt the "Boo'ed" idea to be more accepted in a Christian school setting where it has become taboo to even say you do anything at Halloween time. I love the turkey idea.

jwires, Mrs.O, & n2n2n2n Thanks. When I read n2n2n2n's request, I decided to do it right then and there...it was a great diversion from so many other things I should have been doing...so thank you!

linda2671 Usually the poem tells the recipient to make two copies, pass the fun, and display his/her copy in a window or door. I put mine in "fine print" at the bottom for the turkey-feathered one.

Christmas Fruit Cake
Old 10-30-2008, 02:35 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #24

We don't have a Christmas poem - that I know of; however, one of the funniest (and most fun) things we ever did was the passing of the fruitcake.

I think it was one someone had in their freezer from the Christmas before (because you know fruitcake never dies, it just goes on forever!). She brought it as a joke and put a really nice card with it, but didn't sign the card, just put the recipients name on it.

They decided to pass on the cheer by marking through their name on the envelope and writing someone else's and passing it on to them... by the end of the week, the envelope was running out of places to write the next name as we scratched and scribbled and passed it on...

It became like a "hot potato" game - whoever was the last person with it in their mailbox the last day of school before Christmas break was the "winner" - if you could call it that.. it was silly, but fun...

You've Been Elfed
Old 01-18-2009, 04:18 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #25

I love the "booing" tradition. This was the first year I've seen it in my area. Thanks for posting the Thanksgiving poem - I'll be doing that one next year for sure. Here is one I found for Christmas, called "You've been Elfed":

Santa’s little helper has come to town,
To leave these goodies you have found.
If you wish to have the best season of all
You must help this "Elf" with his call.

First, post this Elf where it can be seen
And leave it there till Christmas Eve.
Then other visiting Elves will pass on their way.
Be sure to participate, it will bring joy to your day.


Second, make two treats,
Two Elves, and
Two notes like this.

Just one day, is all you’ve got
So go ahead and give it a shot.

Leave the treats where they Elf has not gone
By the light of the moon, deliver to their home.

Hide behind a bush, a car even a tree
The surprise & joy on their face you are sure to see.

Now you've been blessed with yuletide cheer.
You’ll feel it throughout the New Year.

Alas another Christmas Tradition is sure to have begun.
Thanks for sharing in this Christmas fun.

And last but not least, enjoy the season.
For all of the right reasons.


I'd really like to do one for Valentine's Day and Easter (maybe even St. Patrick's Day, too!). Has anyone seen one? I'm sure some of you are clever enough to make one (coming up with something like that on my own is not one of my gifts!).

Thanks for posting another one! I had all intentions of writing a few but that was on October 30 when my life was normal. On November first my mom had a major stroke...what a scary journey...and then on the day before Thanksgiving, my adult daughter was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Although things are starting to look a little brighter, we still have a longer journey to complete. Needless to say, I just haven't had the energy to let my creative juices flow.
