In 1878 President Hayes and his wife Lucy officially opened the White House grounds to the children of the area for egg rolling on Easter Monday. The Egg Roll has been held on the grounds of the Capitol, on the White House South Lawn, and even at the National Zoo.

The eggs, made of wood, have been a keepsake for those children from three to six years of age attending the event. The event is held on Easter Monday on the South Lawn of the White House. The eggs, which have a unique design each year, are offered for sale to the general public.
