Father’s Day is right around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to spoil my husband. He works really hard to provide for our family and I appreciate him so very much.

One of my favorite things about our relationship is how we balance each other out – it makes life together so much simpler. Our balancing act is really evident in our chore-doings. He doesn’t like folding clothes and I’m pretty particular about how it’s done. I love to grocery shop, he would rather pass. I really don’t enjoy any kind of car maintenance, so he always picks up the slack on that. 

But I decided to give him a break last weekend and surprised him with a clean truck, fun scavenger hunt, and a bucket full of Armor All products that will make his job of preserving and protecting the appearance (and value!) of our cars a little easier. 

I found the Armor All Car Care Gift Pack at our local Walmart store. It was displayed nicely on a end-cap in the automative department which made it really easy to find. 


Setting up the scavenger hunt was really simple. I grabbed some blank cards from my stationery stash and sat down with the bucket of goodies. I was really excited about the booklet that came with all of the products because it explained to me what exactly each product did and gave some pro tips on how to use them which made coming up with clues a lot easier. 

armor-all-scavenger-huntAfter all the clues were written and the products were hidden around the yard, I asked my husband to meet me outside. He started at his truck with clue #1 and the empty bucket and followed the clues while collecting all of the different Armor All products.

For each stop on the hunt, I came up with a short rhyme about the product that he was adding to his collection and then sent him on his way to the next stop. My clues were totally cheesy and borderline embarrassing but my husband insisted that I share some with you. And since this is part of his Father’s Day celebration, I guess I have to comply…


Clue #1: Surprise! Your truck is clean – but there is more, you’ll see what I mean. Take this big bucket and follow my clues – it’s Saturday morning, you’ve got nothing to lose. First stop is a big, white box that, when loaded unevenly – shakes, rattles and rocks. 


Clue #2: You found the tire shine – some may say it’s extreme (side note: the product he found is Armor All Extreme Tire Shine – HA) now your truck will have tires that are protected and clean. Next stop is up by the road – we use it daily and it’s the color of a toad. 


Totally cheesy right? But they got the point across and we shared lots of laughs as he read each clue so it was tons of fun. The best part is he now has a huge bucket filled with awesome Armor All products that he is excited to use. 

If you have a dad in your life who enjoys working on cars, then this is an awesome gift idea for this Father’s Day. The price was already a steal but you can save a few extra dollars with this coupon while supplies last. 


Do you have any fun plans for celebrating the special dads in your life this year? I would love to hear about them!
