What’s better than being and BOOing others during Halloween season? Not much if you ask my kids. They love the act of leaving things on a doorstep and running, and even better, leaving candy!! So when it comes to BOOing, we are usually the family in the neighborhood to start it, and will BOO people more than once. This year, we had a fun new idea on how to deliver the goodies; pumpkin balloons.

We always blow up our balloons at the beginning to make the balloon stretch more! Now comes the fun (oh and difficult) part! We found it best as a two man job. One person opens up the balloon and holds the hole open while another person puts the candy in. I grabbed a bag of M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, TWIX®, and a Skittles®/Starburst® mix. We can put quite a few pieces into one balloon. Once the balloon is filled, blow it up and tie it off. For the stem/leaves of the pumpkin, tie some fun ribbon to the top of the balloon. This also hides the knot! Then, we drew pumpkin faces on the front of the balloon!

Next, print out the BOOing printable from the BOOItForward.com website and deliver the fabulous treats to the neighbors of your choice. We decided that this would be fun to deliver to the grandparents house! The kids are so excited to doorbell ditch them. Although who knows if we’ll make it away from their house before they realize it’s us…since we have to drive!!

Did you notice the Ghostbusters theme to the card? Well Ghostbusters® is available on Blu-ray and DVD in stores, at Walmart 10/11 and can be preordered on Blu-ray or DVD now!
