The keepsake eggs, that feature the stamped signatures of the president and first lady, will come in four colors – purple, pink, green and yellow.
The eggs are given as a souvenir to all children 12 years and younger who attend the Easter Egg Roll.
In an effort to be eco-friendly, all of the eggs have been crafted from Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood in the United States, according to a release from the White House. The packaging is also designed to minimize waste and environmental impact. The packaging will not contain wood fibers from endangered forests and will feature vegetable oil-based inks and a water-based coating, the White House said.
The annual Easter Egg Roll that brings families to the White House for fun and games will take place on April 5 and will focus on promoting health and wellness under the theme, "Ready, Set, Go." The White House said this year's activities are intended to encourage children to lead healthy and active lives – the same themes of the first lady's recently announced campaign against childhood obesity.
