It’s officially winter, and Mother Nature got the Washington area ready last week with an early snow. At KidsPost, we were thrilled to be able to use snowy weather drawings readers have sent.

Of course, winter isn’t all snow. (Last winter we got less than three inches, according to the Capital Weather Gang.) We would love to see kids’ drawings with cold weather and sun, rain, wind or clouds. So spend a little time during winter break showing KidsPost what winter looks like to you.

Here are the rules:

● Artists must be ages 5 to 13.

● Bright colors work best.

● You can use paints, markers or any other art supplies you have.

● Try to avoid leaving a lot of white space on the page.

A parent, guardian or teacher must give permission for your drawing to be used. Have that person fill out our online form at wapo.st/kidspostweatherart.

Look for your art Monday through Thursday in the print edition of KidsPost and in the online photo gallery at kidspost.com.
