Some neighborhoods, schools and church groups opt for trunk or treating instead of door to door trick or treating. If this is the case for your Halloween, then these ideas are perfect for you. Deck out your vehicle to go along with the theme of your costume or just something festive and fun. Either way, adding decor to your car, van or truck will make Halloween trunk or treating that much more memorable.
Yeah, candy is fun and yummy, but when the kids bring home an entire pillow sack of sugar I freak out a little bit. Each year I like to give out non-candy options. It mixes things up and the kids are excited about the creativity and getting something different than their 50 kit kat bars.
Planning a party for a class full of kids can be stressful, so let make it a little easier. Grab a couple of these fun food craft ideas and send out a sign-up sheet for donations. I assume all schools are the same, homemade treats are not aloud. That is why these treats are awesome. They’re school approved because everything can be store bought and are fun and easy for little fingers.
We started a tradition about 5 years ago to do family costumes. My kids have loved brainstorming what theme, movie or TV Show we should do. There are 6 of us, so it makes it fun to all get to choose a character. Last Halloween we chose Wreck it Ralph. We like to think outside the box, so my boys chose 2 characters that aren’t main characters but are in the movie and they turned out awesome. It’s always fun to be walking out of the elementary school after the children parade and overhear moms say “I love when people get creative like that donut police.” It was pretty cool, I’m not gonna lie. Anyways, if you’re looking for something fun and a few characters that are different, here is what we came up with. Enjoy!
