Trunk-or-Treat Halloween Ideas and Inspiration

Kick This Halloween Into Full Gear With These Creative Trunk-or-Treat Ideas

If trunk-or-treating is a part of your Halloween tradition, take inspiration from these ideas that are easy, unique, and suitable for kids. With cute ideas that reference some of Halloween's most beloved movies like It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and The Nightmare Before Christmas, these themes are not only perfect for the spooky holiday, but they also won't scare the little ones away.

New to the trunk-or-treat game? Often held in the parking lots of schools, community centers, and churches, trunk-or-treat events involve kids trick-or-treating directly out of the trunk of cars, rather than going door to door. Whether the trunk aligns with an entire costume theme or has a theme of its own, there's something seriously cool about a bunch of cars parked in a safe space for kids to fill their candy buckets from.

Whether this is your first year trunk-or-treating or you've done it for as long as you can remember, get ready to fill your car with sweet treats, ghouls and ghosts, and everything in between. Take inspiration from the best ideas, ahead.
