Trunk or Treat!

1st Annual
Trunk or Treat Family Night Event at 
Faith Baptist Church
New Port Richey, Florida
Oct 31, 2012




I've never done a trunk for Trunk or Treat before so I didn't volunteer.  Then on Sunday I was asked to do one because they were short a few cars for their space.  It was hard to do as I have never seen a decorated trunk.  So I didn't know how to proceed.

This is my tutorial for a basic start with fabulous tips on Decorating Your Trunk



Mom drove by on her way home and saw me working on it so she stopped to Trunk or Treat!  
She went home with Kit Kat bars!

Yes, that's my purple cow in the background.

Here is the "action movie" of my trunk 



The event was really fun.  Everyone had a nicely decorated trunk and tomorrow I'll post some of them.

The Family Night had several events.  The public was invited to participate via flyers and signs.  There was a very large bouncy house, a dozen or so carnival games with prizes on one side of the building.  The teens put on a great 10 minute skit every half hour (as only teens can do!) and the Trunk or Treat event was on the other side of the church where the cars lined up and kids went around the parking strip on both sides from one decorated car to another for a handful of treats at each car.

Here is my tutorial on Holding a Trunk or Treat Event
    
It was a nice nice for our community and we did this in lieu of our Wednesday evening service. 

You can get some Jesus Awesome Adventure
Treat Boxes on Amazon to give out homemade treats
like cupcakes, popcorn balls to kids you know
or to make up a variety pack.  
These are so cute:

Just finished Trunk or Treat at my grandchildren's school parking lot, such fun. Your trunk is fabulous, I just hung some black paper and a huge spider from my hatch. Looking forward to seeing more photos with the lights. You are so creative.
