Over the past few years, trunk or treat events have been gaining in popularity. If you don’t know what that is, it is like trick-or-treating, only everyone gathers in a parking lot, decorates their cars, and the kids go from car to car instead of house to house.
If you want to try one out this year, many communities, schools, and churches host these events. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if they know about any. The most important part of a successful trunk or treat is the decorations, which is essentially a costume for your car. Try out one of these trunk or treat themes.
- Mouth Car. Turn the trunk of your car into a mouth. Use a red blanket or towel as the tongue and create teeth out of felt to hang from the top opening.
- Graveyard. This works really well if you drive a pickup. Add tombstone decorations, spider webs, skeletons, and other spooky items.
- Christmas. Celebrate Christmas a couple months early by decking out your car with ribbons, bows, Christmas lights, and wrapping paper.
- Movie. Pick your favorite kids’ movie and decorate to your heart’s content.
