DIY Vampire Bat BOO Kit (BOO It Forward)

We love to BOO our neighbors!  Do you BOO?  It's when you drop off a cute basket or bag of treats to your neighbors, anonymously, with instructions to BOO It Forward to other neighbors in a certain amount of time.  It's such a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit!

You might remember that last year, we moved to a new city across the country.  This year, we're excited to pick out a few of our new neighbors to BOO.  I picked up a few supplies at Walmart, including some American Greetings gift bags

and this bag of delicious MARS® Candy found exclusively at Walmart.

I really wanted to buy this specific bag to last throughout all our Halloween events.  I actually found it by the College Football display, though you may find yours in the seasonal candy aisle or in a special display!  So, if you want this awesome bag, check everywhere or don't be afraid to ask a store manager for help!

I also picked up a black bowl and some other fun Halloween goodies for my BOO Kit.  I knew I could make it into a really fun Vampire Bat Bowl!  Let’s do some friendly neighborhood BOO'ing!

I used my cutting machine and some adhesive vinyl to make this cute little bat face

and also to cut out some wings for my bat.  

Then, I glued the wings on each side of the bat bowl.

If you don't have a cutting machine, you could easily trace some clipart onto some white paper (for the face) or black paper (for the wings).  Could you imagine Frankenstein on a green bowl?  Or a ghost on a white bowl?  The possibilities are endless!

Now it's time to fill up the BOO kit!  I included a cute little bag filled to the brim with my favorite MARS® candies, some glow in the dark goodies, Halloween sprinkles, the American Greetings gift bags (for the neighbors to use when they BOO It Forward) and a cute Halloween wooden stacker set I also made with my cutting machine.

I finished off with this BOO card with instructions for the neighbors. 

If you want to make your own BOO Kit to BOO it Forward,  you could also include a movie.  Get the Spider-Man Homecoming DVD & Blu-Ray on October 17th at Walmart.

(Do you NEED this value bag for your BOO kit?  Hover over the photo to click through to to buy it!)

Once I had everything just the way I wanted it, I put it in a cellophane bag and tied it with some cute Halloween ribbon.  

We're so excited to deliver this to our new neighbors this Halloween season!  Who will you BOO?
