Our Angry Birds Trunk or Treat Car!

This past Sunday our church had it's Fall Festival. It was so much fun! As part of the festivities, we had a Trunk or Treat (if you're unfamiliar with the concept it's where a bunch of people line up their cars and have them decorated with a game and pass out candy for the kiddos).

Jonathan and I decided to dress up our car this year...and then the idea just hit me...we needed to do an Angry Birds car! So that's what we did!

I had a little too much fun sketching and planning this thing out, and I'm so glad that it turned out just the way I envisioned it. I couldn't have done it without husband...he really helped me with the logistics and execution of it all.

For our game, we taped little pigs to smaller blocks and had the kids throw Angry Bird bean bags at them. They got an extra piece of candy for each bird they had leftover. It was a huge hit!

I made the bean bags out of balloons and rice using this tutorial (so, technically they'd be called "rice bags" I guess) and drew the Angry Bird faces on with Sharpie. Super easy and cheap!

Overall, I think it was a success! I loved seeing how excited the kids were about it. Scott Hamilton (yes, the figure skater) even came and brought his boys. 

The entire day was so much fun. So many of our students came dressed up with some pretty creative costumes.

We even had a hot air balloon!

It was a beautiful day spent with wonderful friends. 

Hope you all are having a wonderful Autumn! I can't believe it's November already. I'm already looking forward to the holiday season. This is the very best time of year. :)

With Love,
