Boo-blessing has become a favorite fall tradition around here. What is Boo-blessing? Well, it’s simple. You fill a bag or basket full of goodies for neighbors. Then you leave the bag on their doorstep, knock, and runaway! It is simply a fun way to connect with pur neighbors and strive to love them well in the fall. Below I’m sharing our best tips for Boo-blessing neighbors, ideas of what to put in boo-blessing bags, and a FREE printable Boo-blessing gift tag.
I can think of so many reasons why to start Boo-blessing. A couple of reasons we choose to Boo-bless, is it’s a fun way to teach our littles to intentionally love our neighors. They can be apart of picking out goodies to put in the Boo-blessing. We also let our littles choose who we want to bless. And, they always have fun ding-dong-ditching the neighbors (this is a kind-hearted way to get that out of their system).
Boo-blessing can also serve as a fun Halloween alternative. Some Christian families may choose to avoid participating in Halloween activities, but Boo-blessing can serve to disciple our littles in being a light during every season.
