What Do I Bring to a Halloween Trunk or Treat Near Me?
There are three essentials for all trunk or treat events “near me”:
Usually, trunk or treat events are geared toward little kids, which means the organizer will ask you to keep costumes silly – not scary. Same goes for decorations!
Our 7 Printable Halloween Masks for Kids are the perfect combination of cute and spooky (but mostly cute!) and will fit right in at your local trunk or treat event.
We love seeing how creative people get with their car decorations. Some local car enthusiasts bring out their classic vehicles or souped-up sports cars to really get the party started!
It’s fun to see kids and parents marvel over the decorations and the unique cars.
Most trunk or treat events “near me” ask parents to bring candy in sealed packages only. You might not be allowed to bring homemade snacks to pass out to trunk or treaters – they can pose a health and allergy risk. You can always call or email the event organizers to check!
In addition to bringing candy, bring a stack of Free Halloween Printables! These make great Halloween freebies for kids of all ages.
Plus, they can double as decorations for your car. Set up a table with these 3 Happy Halloween Coloring Pages (Free Printable Downloads), a few chairs, and a big bowl of crayons. Your car is an art studio for Halloween!
