BOO BASIC INSTRUCTION SHEETS

Neighbors new to the "boo" concept will have all their questions answered in this cute instructional poem and "boo" sheet…

What you'll need:

-something to write with (you can write it up on your computer or use your spookiest handwriting)

-Halloween clipart or stickers (I used clipart from the Microsoft website)

-paper

How to do it:

-write out this poem on one sheet:

Happy Halloween!/ Now it's up to you/to put together a treat or two/Wrap it up nice and tight/and drop it off during the night/Or sneak it over during the day/ The key is to place it and race away/Boo your nearest neighbor/Or one who has done you a favor/Send a treat/Along with a copy of these sheets/Then tape the "Boo" sign to your door/So you won't be "boo'd" anymore

-write "BOO" on the second sheet

-decorate with Halloween stickers or clipart

A tub decorated with Halloween designs is something your neighbors can use to hold Halloween treats for years…

What you'll need:

-plastic container or bowl such as a medium-sized paint

bucket or inexpensive, solid color bowl

-Halloween stickers

-black magic marker

-Mod Podge

-paint brush (a small chip brush works well)

How to do it:

1. Wash the container and let dry completely.

2. Place the stickers as desired on the outside of the container.

3. Write a message (such as "Happy Halloween" or "Boo") with the black Magic Marker; let dry completely.

4. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over the stickers and writing to seal; let dry at least four hours.

SPOOKY SPARKLE SOAP

Kids will be happy to clean up after a night of trick-or-treating when they use this sparkly, spooky soap with the surprise in the center…

What you'll need:

-2 pound brick of clear glycerin soap (this will yield about six to eight domed soaps, depending on the size of your mold)

-glitter soap additive

-scented soap additive(I used "fresh linen" scent)

-soap mold, (I used a dome soap mold)

-double boiler

-small toys or decorations (I used Halloween small glass decorations for candles from Lillian Vernon)

-knife

How to do it:

1. Cut the glycerin brick up and place chunks in the top pot of the double boiler. Put about two inches of water in the bottom pot of the double boiler and bring to a boil. Place the top pot (with the glycerin chunks in it) on top of the pot of boiling water.

2. Stirring occasionally, melt the glycerin completely.

3. Add a few drops of the scent to the melted glycerin and stir.

4. Add about one-half teaspoon of the glitter to the glycerin and stir)

5. Pour and fill the mold about one-quarter full (place the remaining glycerin back on the boiling water to keep hot); let set for about 15 minutes; then place the toy or decoration in the center. Fill the mold to the top with glycerin and let cool about 45 minutes.

6. Use a knife to loosen the soap from the mold, then turn the mold upside down and apply gentle pressure to release the soap.
