Decoration Trunk Or Treat Ideas
The great thing about trunk or treat events is that it provides a safe place for our children to trick or treat. Surrounded by staff, volunteers, faculty and parents, kids can roam safely and trunk or treat. Also its a lot easier to decorate a car then your house. Most parents will choose to decorate their car in a way that ties in with their kids costume. This can be a lot of fun and really make your kids feel special. As for decorating the grounds for your school event, see if you can get the art teacher to do some projects with the kids. Card board tombstones hand crafted for the event will make some spooky scenery.
Playing eerie music or Halloween songs over your car stereo can play a huge role on setting the mood for your schools trunk or treat. These days they have full stations that are streaming from Slacker Radio and Pandora and best of all its free. You can also ask for donations from the community to help decorate for any school event. I know when we do a church event most of the decor is donated. At the end of the day its all about creating a great experience for the kids!
Games For Your Trunk Or Treat Are A Must!
As much fun as kids can be its not always easy to hold their attention. Load them up with sugar and surround them by their peers, well i think we all get the picture. Lets face it there is no better way to get kids sugar rushes out than good old competitive games! Taking small cones and painting them like candy corn may not seem like a big deal. However, if you add in some small rings and some candy prizes you have a heck of a cheap carnival game. Football ring tosses are a hit at every school event. Most of the time school staff already has most of what you need. You can also check out our pinterest page for more ideas on games.
