Kids, it’s time to draw spring scenes for KidsPost

Abby Kurtz - We need pictures from our readers that show spring scenes, like this one drawn by Abby Kurtz, 7, of Chevy Chase.

Even with last week’s snow in the region, this winter has been pretty disappointing — again — for anyone who loves snow. So we won’t be sorry to say goodbye to winter later this month. The fun part of doing that is that spring is just around the corner.

It’s a time of flowers blooming, birds singing, trees coming into bloom and spring showers. And we invite our readers to draw pictures of them all for the weather image that appears in KidsPost Monday through Thursday.
