This year, let’s take Halloween to a whole new level of fun with these exciting games that are sure to make your trunk-or-treat event an unforgettable experience.
Before we dive into the heart of the fun—Halloween games for trunk or treat—let’s make sure everyone’s on the same eerie page about what trunk or treat actually is. It’s a fantastic Halloween tradition that’s been gaining popularity in recent years.
Picture this: instead of going door-to-door, kids (and adults, if they’re feeling spirited!) visit parked cars, each decked out in its own unique Halloween theme. These cars, or “trunks,” are like mini trick-or-treat stations, and they offer a safe and fun environment for everyone to enjoy. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to let your creative Halloween spirit shine through car decorations.
Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s jump into the heart of the Halloween fun—these fun trunk-or-treat games that will make your event spooktacular.

Best Trunk or Treat Games
1. Mummy Wrap Race
This one is a classic for a reason. Gather your little monsters and form teams. Each team gets a roll of white toilet paper or streamers and their mission? Transform a willing (and giggly) team member into the spookiest mummy in town!
The catch? They’ve got a time limit. Set your timer and watch as mummies in the making wrap their teammates head to toe in white, just like a real mummy! The team that creates the most authentically wrapped mummy in the least amount of time wins.
2. Axe Throwing Game
No need to panic; we’re not throwing real axes here! We’ve got a foam axe with a VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty loop at the end of the axe and a VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength hook as the target.
Set up a safe distance away and let the axe-throwing trunk or treat game begin.
Folks can take turns tossing the foam axe at the target, aiming for a bullseye. It’s the perfect Halloween trunk or treat game to test your aim while adding a spooky, lumberjack twist to your Halloween celebrations.
3. Pin the Tail on the Werewolf
Remember the classic “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” game from your childhood birthday parties?
Well, it’s time to give it a Halloween makeover. Instead of a donkey, we have a werewolf, and instead of a tail, we have…well, a tail!
Blindfold the brave players, spin them around, and let them try to pin the tail onto the elusive werewolf. The player who gets closest to the mark wins a howling good prize!
4. Ghost Bowling
