Trunk or Treat

Our church had a Trunk or Treat tonight and each small group was in charge of decorating their own trunk. 
Our group did Candy Land as the theme. It was perfect since I had so much stuff left over from Ella's 1st Birthday Party. I love any occasion where I get to bust out those giant lollipops again.
I bought a 9x12 canvas drop cloth for 21 dollars at Home Depot and turned it into a life size Candy Land board game.
 I first laid out brown grocery sacks as my template and traced the pathway with chalk. I then went over the chalk lines with white paint and then began painting away...
We used cardboard to make the candy striped awning,

added the word START to Bob's fashion show arrow,

painted a Candy Land sign on foam board,

and made everyone matching candy land shirts using an iron on transfer sheet. I just pulled the image from google and added the trunk or treat part.
We did a Candy Walk game for all the kids and it seemed to be a hit! Everyone lined up at the starting point. Once the music started, everyone walked the walkway. Whatever color you were standing on when the music stopped is the color bucket you picked your candy from.

We had each bucket represent a different character from Candy Land.

Happy Trunk or Treat!
