You’ve Been Booed!

How to make paper pinwheels - these would be cute as a banner too!

Every Halloween, my girls fill up bags with candy, print out an outline of a ghost and “Boo” their friends.

They ring the bell and hide in the bushes while laughing uncontrollably waiting for someone to answer.  Usually, the kids run outside searching for the culprit and a chase ensues.


Why let the kids have all the fun?

I decided to make my own Boo paper pinwheels.
