Today, President Barack Obama and the First Family will host the White House Easter Egg Roll. In support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, the health-and-fitness theme of this year’s event is “Get Up and Go!” Ecorazzi reported that this year, the participating children will be rolling wooden eggs made from “FSC-certified hardwood and painted with vegetable-oil based inks and a water-based coating.” The eggs will be painted in spring colors such as pink and yellow, and also feature the signatures of the president and first lady. In addition, the event will feature sports, live music, cooking demonstrations, and storytelling.
