The White House is gearing up for the annual Easter Egg Roll on the lawn. The event, which began in 1878, has a long history at the President’s House.
There are commemorative Easter eggs available for purchase, but in addition to these plain eggs, there are also specially designed Easter eggs from children across the country.
New Mexico is sending a design that the children at Arts Academy at Bella Vista in Clovis created featuring a Zia symbol and hot air balloons.
The Nebraska Department of Education chose this design which was created by students in Dorchester public schools with the help of their art teacher Ms. Lutjemeyer.
Texas showed their state pride with a boot and the yellow rose of Texas designed by students at Hardin-Jefferson school district.
The designs from each state will be displayed at the White House Egg Roll so that children all across the United States are represented.
