CARLSBAD, Calif. — The traditional White House egg rolling event will go on a little differently this year, thanks to LEGOLAND.

The theme park kept the time-honored practice alive by creating different LEGO scenes on the White House lawn in its own LEGO version of Washington, D.C.

The spring tradition of rolling eggs on the south lawn of the White House was created by President Rutherford B. Hayes and the First Lady in 1878. Inspired by the national pastime, the Park’s Master Model Builders had a little fun of their own using LEGO models to create fun, silly and entertaining scenes on the infamous lawn.

Thanks to COVID-19, many Easter-themed events have been canceled around the country. To help celebrate, LEGOLAND is challenging kids to create their own Easter masterpieces and share pictures using the hashtag #LLCBuildingChallenge.

The #LLCBuildingChallenge site is filled with instructional videos and activities that promote learning, creating and play. All activities on the site are free and available for everyone to enjoy. For more information visit their website and click on the LLCBuildingChallenge.
