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

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

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.

The drawing runs fairly small, so simple designs with bright colors work best. If you need inspiration, check out our gallery of weather illustrations at Send your pictures to KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. A parent, guardian or teacher can e-mail illustrations to us at with“weather art” in the subject line. Include your full name, age, home town and phone number.
