Putting Together a Candy Land Trunk or Treat

Halloween happens to by my 5 year olds favorite holiday, besides Christmas obviously. So this year I decided to volunteer for Trunk or Treat at my his school. I was a little intimifdated and confused about themes as this was the first Trunk or Treat I have ever attended and participated. My son is in Kindergarten and I really want to do something geared to the younger grades but do something everyone would love. Our favorite game to play together is Candy Land so I figured that would be the perfect theme to create. So, I closed my eyes envisioned the game and off I went....

The first thing I did was search on Amazon for Candy Land Decorations. I came across these awesome Sweet Candy Lollipop Balloons that we had blown up at a local party store for a small fee. 

I also stumbled upon Candy Land Pepper Stripes Deco Letters. I thought these were key for making a banner because they are the true letters from the game. Its important when recreating something you want it to be familiar with the viewer and for $8.99 these were a score. I used poster board and sprayed the background with glitter paint. I hot glued the letters on the sign and added some candy I made using styrofoam discs and cellophane. I made the large lollipops the same way. I just tied them once at the bottom and bought large sticks from the craft store

For the background we used plastic table cloths right from the dollar store and taped them up and added a plastic flag banner. We used poster board and cut out game pieces. And made the candy land walkway using poster board and regular sized pieces of colored construction paper. We also sprayed halloween buckets with glitter spray paint and flipped them upside down to give the "gum drop" look. 

Grab a few small and large pinwheels and throw them in the mix and roll up some poster board and cover to make look like candy sticks and you will have a complete Candy Land Trunk or Treat that everyone will love.

Parents, you will love Britax's New Car Seat

 Parents You WILL Love This Seat

AND Here are just some of the reasons why....

  • Easy adjust harness... Thank you, Britax! I have always hated the struggle of adjusting a harness. 
  • Plush Padding that can be removed as your baby grows. 
  • Super Soft Cover: that's super easy to remove and wash. 
  • Lightweight and compact: And can fit babies  from 4 up to 35 pounds.. The seat only weighs 11.5 pounds and really easy to carry around. 

  • Big canopy: The canopy of this car seat extends beyond the handle of the car seat, and the baby will be protected from any rain and sun.
  • Click&Go capability: This was designed to be part of the Click&Go system, so you can quickly and safely install it in any Britax base or into any Britax stroller. 
  • Ergonomic handle: It was designed to make it easier for parents to hold, whether in our hand or on the forearm. 

Britain Really is Raising the Bar on Car Seat Safety
