Best Ever Trunk or Treat Ideas

by Alli

Trunk or Treat is right around the corner and I have the Best Ever Trunk or Treat ideas. If you’ve been having a hard time trying to come up with something new, I’ve got you covered. The only problem you’ll have is trying to decide which Trunk or Treat idea you’ll use.

We’ve been participating in Trunk or Treat for several years and I like it much better than staying home and giving out candy. We all have candy or prizes and the kids walk from one trunk to the next. Meanwhile, all the participants have a blast talking and laughing. It’s like one big party!

Make sure you check out even more trunk-or-treat ideas at the end of this post. And you don’t want to miss Fortnite and Top Gun ideas.

The Toy Story

This one is so good, too! It helps that the guy who put this together is a carpenter. If you don’t have the time or talent, it can be done on a much smaller scale.
