Trunk or Treat Tips and Ideas!

Halloween is around the corner and as you think about how you want to decorate your car for our Trunk or Treat event consider these suggestions: 

  1. Start with a Theme – Your theme will establish everything else you do. Start by choosing a theme and then add your ideas to it!
  2. Coordinate Your Costume – More than just decorating your car, consider matching your costume to the theme, too! If you have a Flintstone’s trunk – you could dress the whole family up as members of the Flintstone family! 
  3. Add an Activity – Many trunk decorators have added ways for the kids to earn their candy through some sort of activity. For some trunks, the kids must search through a treasure chest of gold at their pirate-themed car, or maybe they have to throw their fishing pole into the “sea” trunk to retrieve their prize. Kids LOVE this sort of thing!
  4. Get Creative With the Candy – Depending on your theme, consider giving away candy or prizes that match the theme. For example, the Cookie Monster-themed trunk could definitely give out some cookies! 
  5. Make it Personal – Think of your own favorite animals, children’s stories, movies, hobbies and more that YOU are interested!
  6. Finally, make sure decorations are family friendly and most importantly HAVE FUN!
