In case you’re wondering, we modify our boo buckets and do not include the message about booing another family. While we think it’s a fun idea to keep the festivities going, we never want anyone to feel bad about not wanting to or not being able to make a bucket for another family.
If you feel the same way, just leave out those printables and you’re all set!
If you’d rather use a free printable, we also have these last minute You’ve Been Booed gift printables you can add to your bucket.
