Trunk or Treat is fun event that's an easy "yes" for most families to attend whether they go to church regularly or not. Who doesn't love free candy!
As fun as these events are, Trunk or Treats - like many things in 2021 - are bound to look a little different this year. It may take a little more space to park the cars, a little more hand sanitizer, and a mask over your...mask, but this could be the best year yet to host a Trunk or Treat.
Not only have people been isolated for much of the year, but there's also been a pretty steady stream of negative news that's led to lot of stress and a lot of fear. As Christians we've been given the solution to both of those things! I can't think of a better time to host an event meant to bring joy and shine light in the darkness.
So without further ado, here are 31 of our favorite Trunk Or Treat Ideas for Church in 2021. (Many of these ideas were found on Pinterest and you can also check out our Trunk Or Treat Ideas on Pinterest to see all of these plus tons of other Trunk or Treat ideas!)
