Boo Baskets

Uploaded: Oct 11, 2020
When searching for Halloween crafts and activities for our kids this year, I found boo baskets. We’ve never made boo baskets before, but I loved the idea of starting new traditions this year. Our kids were very excited to create Halloween themed baskets for a couple of our friends and drop them off as a little Halloween surprise.

Last week we delivered our Halloween baskets filled with candy, crafts, stickers and Lego. And I can’t wait to do it again next year! We changed it up a bit and included a card letting our friends know who delivered the goodies and we didn’t ask them to make baskets for more friends. We wanted to keep it as simple as possible.

Making and delivering Halloween baskets has been a wonderful way for our family to start off the holiday season and reconnect with friends. Holidays may look quite different this year, but with some creativity and imagination, I hope we can keep the holiday spirit alive and create memorable and enjoyable experiences for our kids. We may even start new traditions that will continue for many years to come.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
