If you’re like many parents, you may be considering bringing your kids to a trunk-or-treat event this year. A recent take on tradition trick-or-treating, trunk-or-treating allows participants to concentrate the event in a smaller area by decorating vehicles in a designated spot and allowing kids to go from trunk to trunk. This is especially helpful in areas where homes are far apart, or for small children who might not be able to walk around the neighborhood.
When it comes to decorating a vehicle for this sort of event, your first thoughts may be of an SUV or pickup truck. Don’t let its size fool you, though: the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is perfect for Bowie area drivers who are eager to get into the spirit of Halloween!
As the name suggests, most people tend to park head-in and use their trunk as the foundation of their mobile trick-or-treating station. At 14.4 cubic feet of trunk space, the 2017 Elantra has plenty to offer. We also suggest a roll of fabric or paper coming out from the trunk to extend your space, which can act as a path, scenery, or the tongue of a beast you’ve made out of your trunk!
The classic trunk monster is always popular, with teeth added to the top and bottom lips of the open trunk. For a less scary take on this idea, you can always turn your trunk into the mouth of a friendly character that children know, instead.
Of course, your trunk can also become the environment to fit a costume you’ll be wearing. Dressing as a pirate? Fill your trunk with ocean scenery and turn old boxes into treasure chests loaded with candy in gold wrappers. Going as a cowboy? Some hay and cardboard ranch scenery are a nice touch. Use your imagination!
With a bit of creativity and some recycled cardboard, you just might surprise yourself with what you’re able to accomplish in your 2017 Elantra! And don’t worry about smudges and fingerprints from candy-eating trick-or-treaters—our Bowie area Hyundai detailing center has you covered when the fun’s all done!
