Boot or Treat parties are held by churches as an alternative to Halloween, which is considered to be pagan by some Christians, and can be a safe way to monitor how children receive their candy. Boot or Treat parties usually take place in a church car park, where parked cars line up with lifted boot hoods. Children then go boot-to-boot to receive their candy. Just as homes are decorated on Halloween, parents often go to elaborate lengths to decorate their cars for this wholesome family event.
Create a disco ballroom in a mini van or boot by hanging a mirror ball from the interior light. Blast disco music, flash strobe lights and hang vinyl albums all around the inside. Rope off the open sliding door of the van with a red velvet rope and have a big bouncer stand next to the rope, selecting who gets to gain admission based upon their costume.
If you drive a silver SUV, transform it into a large toaster. Create large knobs and toaster dials from round and rectangular plastic dustbin lids. Tape them on the back window and sides of the car. Place large pieces of cardboard on the top of the car to simulate toasty looking popping out of the slots. A large black garden hose peeking through a side or hatch window serves as the toaster's electrical cord.
Take advantage of the open boot of your car by rimming the perimeter with large sharklike teeth or paper triangles. Use a large pink piece of fabric or a beach towel as a tongue and add a few mannequins sticking out feet first. Place some other "stomach" contents like seaweed, tin cans or a broken surfboard into the boot. Add a fin to the top of the car and your car's a shark. Blast the ominous theme from "Jaws" out of your car stereo for added creepiness.
Transform Noah's Ark into Noah's boot with a menagerie of stuffed animals. Paint a sheet of plywood with dark paint or stain and cut it to cover the opening of the boot. Make sure you cut out a rectangle for a door. Place a plank of wood from the ground to fit into the door hole and position animals on the plank so it looks like they are marching into the boot. Tape cardboard waves around the fender of the car to make it appear as though the boot is floating in the sea.
