Halloween Holidays

DIY Halloween Boo Bucket’s

October 24, 2022

Boys & Girls 4-14

If there is one time you can guarantee a parenting win for gifts, it’s Halloween boo buckets!

This is something that is definitely new to my family so for us I know that I have an advantage due to the sheer fact that they weren’t expecting anything to begin with lol.

For smaller children and girls

you will have your best luck at the dollar spot at Walmart and Target and local dollar stores. They will typical carry fun nick nacks, puzzles, bubbles, candy, themed crafts and even socks and fun bags. For cute holiday clothes I highly recommend Walmart because they will offer a wide variety of options at affordable prices.

What’s in my girls basket?

  • Dollar Tree coloring & sticker book
  • Dollar General Halloween themed cookie
  • Dollar General Snack bags
  • Walmart cat ears & face temporary tattoos
  • Walmart LED Sticker Badge
  • Walmart coloring pens and stickers
  • Walmart Tie-dye pumpkin crop top
  • Target sensory foam
  • Target puzzle
  • Target Bubbles
  • Target cat lighting up wand
  • Fabkids Halloween pants (join their monthly program here)

Most items were under $5. The most expensive was the clothing. You can see everything here!

  • Boo bucket

When it comes to boys

it can be a little more difficult for the older ones. You can find a few things with the girl stuff for younger boys but when but when it comes to the older ones I recommend going with more snacks or sports themed. It can add up so be sure to plan accordingly and spread out your shopping trips so that it doesn’t seem like so much at once.

Whats in my boys bucket?

  • Walmart Beef Jerky
  • Walmart Volleyball Knee pads
  • Walmart Gatorade Insulated water bottles
  • Walmart Halloween Socks
  • Dollar General Snacks
  • Dollar General Halloween Cookies

Their items were a bit more pricey so they didn’t have as much to fill them, however if you have kids you know that the older they get, the more things cost

Check out what the other GalPals have in their baskets!
