The annual White House Easter Egg Roll was held on Monday, April 17 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the South Lawn of the White House.
This year, President and Mrs. Bush invited hundreds of outstanding youth volunteers as their special guests at this year's Easter Egg Roll. These youth have answered the call to service and have made a tangible difference in their communities by volunteering through many local organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters, YMCA, Campfire USA, Citizen Corps, and Learn & Serve, and are supported by organizations like Youth Service America.

I send greetings to those observing the joyous holiday of Easter. On Easter, Christians around the world join together with family and friends to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the triumph of love over death. This is a season of renewal, a time for giving thanks and praise and for remembering that hope overcomes despair. Read the 2006 Message...
Local artists created the decorated eggs, which represent each state and the District of Columbia. The 2006 Easter Egg Collection continues the tradition that began in 1994 where each state sends a decorated egg to the White House for display. The collection is coordinated by the American Egg Board. Learn More...
We have prepared a few games, puzzles and much more. Come and play.
