We recently had a close family friend visit with her young son. It was so fun to have a little one in the house that still gets excited for Halloween. (Unlike my man children who are too cool for that now…eye roll) So, of course, I had to put together some adoraBOOle Halloween treats for our little guest and his younger cousin.
You’ve Been Boo’d
I love to surprise our family and neighbors with treats, so you know I love to Boo! everyone I can! And, I have shared several different BOO (and BOO’zed tags). Click the links below to see some of my favorites.

AdoraBOOle Halloween treats
The first thing to consider when you create Boo Buckets for your friends and family is how much you want to spend. I wanted my buckets to be less than $20. Then I needed to find age appropriate treats for the buckets.
I purchased the bucket and basket from Target. Each basket had candies, a special Halloween soda, a book, and a Halloween t-shirt, and a cute Halloween Pennant Flag from Laura’s Little Party’s Etsy Shop.
The Boo Buckets were for a three-year-old boy and a nine-year-old boy. I found a cute Disney coloring book, fat crayons at the Dollar Tree for the younger boy, and a fun Mad Libs Halloween book for the older boy. The Halloween shirts were from H&M and Old Navy and were about $6 each. The candies and other sweet treats were part of bulk purchases I made for my son’s care package and trick-or-treaters. Finally, I added a coupon book for free treats at a fast-food restaurant in each bucket.
Once I had all of the treats, I lined the bucket with paper shreds, and the basket with tissue paper. Then, I added all of the goodies. Once they were full, I printed a cute Halloween flag on card stock and secured it to a skewer with hot glue. (Don’t forget to cut off the pointed end) I added a little ribbon to the skewer and tucked the flags into each boy’s bucket.
