Erin Janiga, 10, of South Riding drew a lot of weather in a small space.

Summer is officially here, and that means that KidsPost is once again calling all kid artists to get out the paints and pencils, crayons and markers to create wonderful summery weather art to illustrate our daily weather forecast.

Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

While we all love the beautiful, bright and warm sunshine that summer brings, we also know that summer has its fair share of rain showers and ear-splitting thunderstorms. Also remember that bright colors and drawings that can reproduce well small work best in the newspaper. (Try doing your drawing on a 3-inch-by-5-inch notecard.)

In order for us to consider your drawing, we need your full name, age and home town written on the back of your artwork. Illustrations should be sent to KidsPost Weather Art, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.

After you mail it to us, check back Monday through Thursday to see if your artwork is a perfect match for that day’s weather forecast.
