    Colin Moorhouse, 10 months, of Atlantic City, New Jersey, gets a little help from his mother Megan Moorhouse during last year's Easter Egg Roll.

    Kids from around the country will be chasing after eggs on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday.

    The Obamas are hosting the annual Easter Egg Roll contest.  The theme this year is "Get Up and Go," which dovetails with the First Lady's "Let's Move" campaign.  In addition to the egg rolling, there will be physical activities for attendees, including yoga.

    The White House gave out free tickets to the event through a lottery system.

    In addition to the exercise, the event will feature live music.  Willow Smith will be on hand to perform.

    Didn't get a ticket to the event?  The White House will be streaming live coverage of the event at their website.

    The egg rolling contest has been around since 1878, when Rutherford B. Hayes was president.
