Mars BOO Bags #DontBeTheDarkHouse #Cbias

We don’t typically do much more for Halloween than go trick-or-treating. For the first time this year, I heard via Twitter that people were being “BOOed”. I kind of made a face wondering what everyone else knew about and I once again DIDN’T.
Turns out at the beginning of October people begin BOOing each other. One person sneakily leave a poem for another person with some little Halloween treats and don’t let them know who’s done it.
Well, I had the chance to finally BOO someone this coming week! I headed to Walmart to grab some goodies to make and add into the BOO bags!decorationsWhen I first got there, the guys were stocking the shelves so I headed to the Seasonal decoration aisle to see what I could come up with! I was SO shocked at all the goodies they have for parties and BOO bags!
They had straws, bubbles, pencils, stickers, and much more! One could seriously go crazy over stuffing bags!
I grabbed a package of cellophane bags for my boys to decorate and then had to come up with a couple of fun toys all the while remembering that I’d need to add some candy as well.
I walked up and down the aisle trying to figure out what would be fun for the kids. I grabbed pencils, crafting necklaces, spider rings cellophane bags and stickers to decorate them with.
After I grabbed all the Boo supplies, I headed back to the candy to see what yummy options I would have! An entire aisle of candy on either side is pretty much heaven in my book!Lots of CandyI found the Mini Snickers in a small package and a big package. Those were surrounded by 3 Musketeers, M&Ms and Milky Ways. If I’m going to buy candy on any given day it’s going to be a bag of Peanut M&Ms. Those are my go-to candy typically.
I grabbed Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and my favorite Peanut M&Ms! =) Of course, I didn’t want to forget the mama of the brood who will be receiving these BOO bags. I got a yummy Dove candy bar for her.
When my daughter came home this weekend, we all decorated the bags. What I had no clue was, once the glitter glue dried on the cellophane bags, the glue would fall right off! LOL Who knew? We may have to grab a package of paper bags to make sure the BOO bags are properly decorated, glitter and all!Creating our bagsWe all did a bag with the stickers and glitter glue. I love how my kids get into these activities! I’m hoping next year I’ll remember this and have our kids BOO our neighbors and I might even do the same thing at work!
