Surprise Friends with a Quarantine Treat

Melissa Kossler Dutton

Looking to bring some unexpected amusement to your friends and neighbors? Why not reprise the fun Halloween tradition of BOOing for a quarantine surprise? Gather up some candy, movies, books or other entertaining treats and package them with a note that announces they’ve been “quarantained.” Looking for a theme for your special delivery? Check out care-package-related Pinterest boards.

If you’re really clever, you could write a poem similar to the fun Been Booed greetings that can be found online. Be sure to leave a sign that the recipients can post on their door and encourage them to “quarantaine” another family.
