Brrr. It’s cold out. The pumpkins are gone, and the leaves have fallen off the trees. At KidsPost, that means we need new weather art for our daily forecast.

What comes to mind when you think of winter? Evergreen trees? Hot chocolate? Ice skating? Or possibly . . . snow? (Maybe this winter we will actually get some!) Be creative, but remember that bright colors and designs that look good when shrunk to a small size work best.

For us to consider your drawing, we need your full name, age (ages 5 to 13) and home town written on the back of your artwork. We also need a note from an adult (parent, guardian or teacher) giving permission for your drawing to be used.

Illustrations should be sent to KidsPost Weather Art, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. You can also e-mail your scanned art to kidspost@wash post.com.

Check back Monday through Thursday to see if your artwork is a perfect match for that day’s weather forecast. We’ll also post some on kidspost.com in our online weather art gallery.
