If you’re familiar with the “You’ve Been Booed” signs that might have popped up around your neighborhood during October, you’ll love this “We’ve Been Cheered!” free holiday printable.
If you’ve got no idea what I am talking about, keep reading. A popular activity among some neighborhoods is to Boo each other at Halloween. This involves leaving a small treat plus a “We’ve Been Booed” printable sign on 1 or 2 of your neighbor’s doorsteps. They can then enjoy their treats and choose another neighbor to Boo. It’s a fun way to have Halloween fun with your neighbors.
And now it’s time to do it for the Holidays! No matter what holiday you celebrate during this time of the year, you can participate in spreading cheer throughout your neighborhood.
Spread Cheer To Your Neighbors With This Fun Holiday Printable
Here’s how to “Cheer” your neighbors this holiday season.
- Print out 2 copies of the We’ve Been Cheered Holiday Printable and assemble 2 sets of treats. The treats can be anything so have fun and get creative (scroll down for some great ideas).
- Deliver each treat basket plus a “We’ve Been Cheered” sign to a neighbor. Try to do this secretly so they don’t know who Cheered them!
- Sit back and see how far the “We’ve Been Cheered” signs spread throughout your neighborhood.
