"Get Up and Go!" is the theme of this year's White House Easter celebrations, continuing first lady Michelle Obama's efforts to encourage healthy and active young Americans.

Echoing the "Let's Move!" campaign, the official 2011 White House Easter egg logo stars an anthropomorphized bunny clothed in workout gear, hopping for joy. This year's logo follows the trend from 2010, which featured the same active rabbit in a jogging pose.

The logo appears on souvenir eggs comprised of sustainable hardwood and delivered in environmentally friendly packaging.

This year's White House Easter Egg Roll will take place on Easter Monday, April 25.
