Do you guys do Boo Baskets for your littles? I think the tradition is quite adorable!
Every year on October 1, I plan to surprise my girls with a few Halloween treats to amp up the excitement around Halloween for the month! You can follow along on my Instagram (@amandamhamman) for more details & stories about what I’ll be including in their baskets this year.
The baskets are meant to be simple! Don’t overthink – it’s the thought that counts… and the name! I mean, how cute is the name Boo Basket? 🙂 These items do not need to be expensive. Just go to your local Dollar Tree or Target Dollar Spot and pick out some festive lil’ paint sets, wind-up toys, coloring books, etc.! I also have an entire blog post dedicated to Boo Baskets Finds from Amazon!
What to Include in your Boo Basket:
- Halloween cups/plates
- Books (you can view my list of recommendations + our Halloween book shelf here)
- Stickers (I usually pick these up from Target or Dollar Tree!)
- Dress-up clothes and/or a t-shirt
- Pennant flags from Etsy
I’ve linked some more ideas for you:

It gets better… we also are going to create mini boo baskets for some of our friends and neighbors to share some love! “You’ve Been Boo-ed” is how the saying goes! 🙂
To be completely transparent, I plan to use a lot of these items year after year in their Boo Baskets! My girls are still young enough that it will be like new when they see this again next year.
