Car Treasure Hunt



If you’re looking for a fun and inexpensive idea for your man- we’ve got a great one for you today!  It’s perfect for Father’s Day, his birthday, an anniversary, or just to lead to a fun date night!

Today we’re gonna show you how to…

Send your man on a Car Treasure Hunt!

Oh, and did we mention it comes with FREE printable clue cards- so most of the work is already done for you!?  Yes ma’am!  It’s true.  Take a peek at these lovelies designed for us by our very own Brie- the talent behind All Around Eye Candy…


Aren’t they FUN?! Each clue card has a clever little rhyme that leads to the next one- until he finds his “treasure” in the trunk.  What is the treasure, you ask?  Everything you need for a cozy Drive-In for 2!

You could go to a real Drive-In OR just charge your laptop, grab one of his favorite DVDs, and find a quiet place to park.  (If you need to make it into an at-home date night after the kids are in bed, you could even just park it in the garage and grab the baby monitor.)

All You Need Is:

  • Our free “Car Treasure Hunt” printables
  • Some scissors
  • Tape
  • Super Soft Plush Blanket
  • Popcorn (Add some drinks or candy, if you want, too!)
  • Tickets to your local drive-in OR a charged laptop and a DVD


Here’s What You Do:

1.  Attach Clue #1 to his keys

“You have the KEY to my heart.  This key leads to where the hunt starts.”


2.  Tape Clue #2 to the steering wheel

“You DRIVE me crazy like no one can beat.  Find the next clue in the backseat.”


3. Tape Clue #3 on the backseat

“Start your engine for a night that rocks! You’ll soon see why.  Psst… look in the GLOVEBOX.”


4.  Hide Clue #4 in the Glovebox

“You fill me up and FUEL my fire.  Check your gas tank to see what’s going to transpire.”  


5. Tape Clue #5 to the lid of the Gas Tank

“I’ll never tire of you, my hottie hunk!  Zoom on over & look in the TRUNK.”


6. Hide the Treasure Card & goodies in the Trunk

“You make my heart race, you know it’s true.  So how about a Drive-In for Two?!  I’ve got a blanket and popcorn, too- so I can cuddle in the back with you.  We’ll find a place to park and be revving things up soon.  What do you say? *wink*wink* Vroom, vroom!”


Wouldn’t this make the perfect Father’s Day date?!

    This is the most adorable thing ever! I totally want to do this, but when I try to download the printable, it tells me there is a drawing error. Any idea why it won’t work? Thanks!

    • Laura says:

      Nevermind! I realized that even though the pictures didn’t show up on the online screen, I could still download it, and everything looks great when I opened the folder on my computer. No idea what this “drawing error has occurred” dialog box means, but the download still worked. Thanks so much!

    This sounds amazing! My wife to be is in Indonesia for a month while I am stuck at home in Canada for work, that should give me a little time to do some elaborating on this and make it perfect for some “us” time after the catching up we will do first :) great idea, thanks!

    Hi there Dating Divas,

    This is such a great idea, but unfortunately if I’m trying to download it. It’ says, that the file is damaged and can not be repaired. I’d love these. If you could sent these direct to my e-mail. That would be just perfect as I’m planning to take him to the drive in cinema here in Perth, Australia.

    Kindest Regards

    How were you able to make these. Im trying to make ones similar but not the same but cant figure out how to do the fonts like these. what website/computer program did you use?

    • Becca Becca says:

      Hi Kimberly, one of our talented designers actually designed these for us. But many of us “Divas” use Photoshop to create our own printables. You could also check out PicMonkey.com :)
