Okay, so it was 50+ degrees and lovely outside, but we still had snow.
Our church hosted their second trunk or treat this year. Last year we were overwhelmed at the response and everyone was out of candy 20 minutes into the deal. This year, I decided to be prepared. I started buying large bags of candy 6 weeks ahead of time. We went through 12 of those bags over the two hours of the event. We were left with just 2 bags.
Last year we did a Noah’s Ark, jungle, animal theme. This year, we did a winter wonderland, candy, Olaf, pizza theme.
Olaf was made of 1 beanbag wrapped in a piece of white curtain, one layer was stuffed with quilting fluff, and the top was freehand drawn by my husband on posterboard. Our falling snow was made up of hand cut snowflakes stapled to thick yarn. The lollipops were built and painted by my husband and wrapped in colored cellophane. The pizzas (don’t ask, I don’t know) were made out of construction paper. The girls were live snowflakes–draped in white curtain panels with posterboard snowflakes on their front and back.
My hubby and girls were the creative forces behind this project. I am so proud of their work and their great attitudes. I am not creative, but I have lots of craft supplies, so I provided those.
We had a great time passing out candy to 1000+ people!!
