Halloween is right around the corner and it’s time to have some fun! Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. I love the costumes, the trick or treating, the school parties and surprising my friends and family with BOO kits!
When fall hits I head to my local Walmart for all my BOO’ing needs: M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, TWIX®, Skittles®, Starburst®, Life Savers®, American Greetings®, Sunkist® Soda, Canada Dry®, 7UP®, and A&W® Root Beer. These are perfect picks for creating fun and unique BOO kits! The American Greetings® add a fun touch to whatever container you are using and it’s so fun to fill with yummy treats like M&M’S® and Skittles® candies! Top it off with your favorite Sunkist Soda, Canada Dry, 7UP, or A&W Root Beer mini monster cans*, which are great for sharing. I love soda and these cans are cute AND the perfect size!
* Find these limited edition cans in-store at your local Walmart.
This year I am in ready for Halloween early and I decided to create a fun BOO kit by upcycling a large plastic coffee container and making it into a Jack-O-Lantern that I could fill with awesome treats! I just happened to have an almost empty coffee container in the cupboard so I washed it out, dried it and got to work. It only took a few hours once everything dried and it’s now ready to be delivered!
