WATCH: Melania Charms Children at White House Easter Egg Roll Event

On Monday, First Lady Melania Trump took the initiative at the 2019 White House Easter Egg Roll, incorporating her “Be Best” initiative throughout the event.

After blowing the starting whistle to begin the annual Egg Roll, the First Lady and President Trump met with the thousands of children in attendance, and joined in games and crafts, including a new “Be Best” hopscotch and an egg-themed version of Musical Chairs.

Later in the day, Melania read “The Wonderful Things You Will Be” by author Emily Winfield Martin, and spoke to the children about the importance of kindness to others.

President Trump praised Melania, who he said did a “fantastic job” organizing and hosting the event, “I have to thank our First Lady, she worked so hard on this event,” adding, “So thank you very much. Fantastic job.”
