Make These Tiny Trophies for Your Easter Games + Egg Hunts

If you’re hunting for Easter eggs, you might as well make it interesting! These tiny trophies are a fun DIY project to add to your Easter celebrations, egg hunts, and Easter games.

No, I’m totally not competitive or anything and I MADE EASTER EGG HUNT TROPHIES! Granted, my family is not exactly at the place where we can give our kids a tiny trophy that says “I Lost” and expect them to understand that it’s a joke.

But I can just see a future where these coveted trophies are traded annually as everyone competes to get the most (or the fewest!) eggs. So if you have a family or a framily that’s full of good sports and likes a little friendly competition, make yourself a set of these.

Psst — sign up for my VIP gropu below and I’ll send more of my very best holiday ideas straight to ya!

Mini Trophies for Easter Games

I love the idea of using these trophies year after year for your Easter games or egg hunts. They’re a fun DIY project to create together (kids can even help, too!), and even more fun to include in your holiday traditions.

I could even see them being used for other Easter games!

Easter Game Ideas (Or Egg Hunt Alternatives)

Just to get your ideas flowing, here are a few Easter game ideas to try with your friends and family!

  • Egg and Spoon Races – Place an egg in a plastic spoon and race your opponent across the yard.
  • Three-Legged Race – Standing next to a friend, tie your inner legs together and try to get to the finish line before the opposing team.
  • Water Balloon Toss – Toss a water balloon back and forth, taking a step backward after each successful throw. The last team with an unpopped water balloon wins!
  • Bunny Hop Sack Races – Put two feet into a burlap sack or pillowcase and hop to the finish line.
  • Easter Egg Memory – Fill plastic eggs with matching items and try to match them, like in the game of Memory.

Supplies You’ll Need for Easter Egg Trophies

Materials

Make Time: 30 Minutes (Plus Drying Time)

How to Make Easter Egg Hunt Trophies

  1. Start by painting all of your materials. We found that the paper mache eggs took craft paint much better than spray paint; just brush it on with smooth strokes and add a second coat if it’s a little too thin when it dries. Spray paint the trophies gold in a well-ventilated area.
  2. Allow all pieces to dry thoroughly. Use a glue gun to spread a ring of glue around the top of the trophy cup. Press an egg down into the glue until it adheres firmly.
  3. If you’re using pre-made alphabet stickers, you can just skip to Step 4. If you’re using a Cricut machine, create your vinyl stickers. Create your phrases (Most Eggs, Fewest Eggs, Eggcellent, I Lost, etc.) in the software for your cutting machine. You’ll need to size it appropriately for your eggs; we sized ours so that the word “eggs” was about 3/4″ of an inch wide in our desired font. The font used here is Century Gothic Bold. Once designed, cut out the letters using the cutting machine.
  4. Place your stickers or vinyl onto the eggs. We recommend starting in the center of a word and working your way out so that it’s easier to space. You’ll also find that it’s much easier to place the letters with tweezers than with your bare hands. Keep working until all of your trophies are labeled as you like.

More Ways To Use The Egg Trophies

I just love these little guys! I think they’d make awesome perpetual trophies, handing them off each year to the winners and losers of your family Easter egg hunts.

And if you don’t hunt eggs, they’d also make super cute place cards — just put your guests’ names on them instead of the egg hunt phrases.

Or fill them all with egg puns like these from a few years back! I could think up a zillion ways to use these cuties.
