'Get Up And Go!' Is White House Easter Egg Theme

This year's design for the White House Easter Egg continues first lady Michelle Obama's effort to get kids in shape.

As you can see, it's a bunny who appears to be getting some exercise (last year's did as well). The White House, which just unveiled the design, says the theme is "Get Up and Go!" and that the activities at this year's White House Easter Egg Roll "will encourage children to lead healthy and active lives, which is a central part of the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity."

The Easter Egg Roll is scheduled for April 25. The wooden souvenir eggs can be ordered here ($7.50 each; $26.50 for the four-pack.)

Sales of the eggs support the Easter Egg Roll. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
