    Default Planning a Trunk or Treat

    I am in charge of putting together my daughters schools 1st trunk or treat event. I am looking for any suggestions on how this should put together. I tried looking on the internet for planning ideas, but I couldn't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    What exactly IS the TRUNK part of the event? Is that where you hide the bodies? Insted of a trick, you shove 'em in a trunk?

    Is a "Trunk or Treat" when kids are taken to a parking lot full of cars and go trick or treating from car to car?

    If so,

    1. Pick a large area to hold it and make sure to arrange for other parents to come(But you've probably doen this already).

    2. If at all possible, try to put up something between the cars so the kids can only see one car at a time. You could make screens out of PVC piping and black plastic.

    3. Decorate your car using plastic window clings, a dead body in the driver's seat or trunk, legs sticking out from under the car, or something like this. Encourage others to do the same.

    4. If you really want to wow the kids, park as close to a nearbytree as you can and make this.

    5. Trunks can also hold "surprise boxes". Paint a shoebox black (both inside and outside) and cut a nahd-sized hole in the lid. Place bowls full of special items for the kids to feel. Be sure to have paper towels handy for this one. Some items you can put in your boxes include:

    -Spaghetti "brains"
    -Peeled grape "eyes"
    -Corn silk "hair"
    -A gelatin "liver"
    -A peeled plum "heart"
    -Dried apricot "ears"
    -Popcorn kernal "teeth"
    -A corpse hand made from a latex glove filled with mud. You should make this just before the kids arrove so it has a firm, cold feel to it.
    -Creepy critters made from scraps of fake fur with a few drops of dried white glue for teeth and claws. A hidden tape player of growling and a fur-covered "Bumble Ball" can add greatly to this effect.

    What...a "Trunk or Treat". Are you trying to put us home haunters out of business or what? Halloween isn't Halloween unless there's door to door candy begging!

    The "Don't Drink and Drive" scene here has some other nifty effects that the "Jeep From Hell" doesn't.

    Maybe a Trunk or Treat is where you fill your car trunk full of candy & goodies and the kids come up and knock on your car trunk saying,"Trunk or Treat".Either that or kids drag around a huge trunk and yell Trunk or Treat.If ya don't give them candy they hit you with the trunk!

    This whole thing doesn't have anything to do with elephants, does it?

    Hi Robyn and welcome to the forum. What is a trunk or treat and how old are the kids?

    David, I think you have to go through the trunk to get out. And you guys stop terrorizing the elephants, poor things have to breath you know. LOL
    I wonder if you put kids in the trunks and drag them to houses with porch lights on and leave them there?
