What is Trunk or Treat?
At Trunk or Treat, costumed children walk through a parking lot, stopping at cars that have decorated trunks to play a short game and get candy.
Guidelines for Decorated Trunks
- Text or Email Brittany Pound to register as a car “Trunk” host.
- Setup will start at 5:30 and stop 6:15 PM.
- Trunk Host are encouraged to bring candy/ prizes, SHBC will also provide items.
- Electricity is not available in most areas.
- Theme Guidelines-Please no scary decorations, we want to keep it fun for all ages.
- Trunk Hosts are encouraged to wear costumes to match their theme but they are not required.
Fun and Games
We encourage you to include carnival-type games for kids to play, such as a ring toss, bowling, or shooting a foam basketball. The games should be short and easy enough for young children to play. You can add an educational element with estimation games—for example, guessing how many pieces of candy corn are in a jar or how much a pumpkin weighs. Children who win the game can be given small prizes or extra candy; however, all children should receive candy at each station, regardless of how they did on the game. If you need ideas or resources please text Brittany Pound, we have a lot of supplies on hand.
