Some of these trunk-or-treat decoration ideas are truly over the top.
Along with everything else in our lives, Halloween celebrations may look a bit different this year due to the global pandemic. If you're considering how to trick-or-treat safely with your kids this Halloween, this might be the year for your family to try Trunk-or-Treating.
Indeed, a recent Halloween 2020 trends report showed that 22% of parents surveyed expect to Trunk-or-Treat this year with families they know. For the uninitiated, Trunk-or-Treat is a Halloween tradition in which cars get just as decked out as candy-seekers. Participants bring their cars to a central location, most likely a church or school parking lot, and then decorate them with some kind of thematic flair. Then, costumed trunk-or-treaters roam from vehicle to vehicle, collecting candy and Halloween treats as they go.
Trunk-or-Treat events are perfect for rural areas with spaced-out homes, for kids who get tired walking from house to house, or for families who want to add in an extra candy-gathering activity before or after door-to-door trick-or-treating. They also allow parents to show off their creative sides.
Trunk-or-Treat ideas run the gamut, from turning your open-trunk cars into open-mouthed monsters, to re-creating some of your favorite movie and TV show scenes and sets in and around your vehicle.
