McLean’s Thais Rolly, age 7, has a good eye for spring weather. (Thais Rolly)

Spring has finally sprung. Look around and you’ll see bright yellow daffodils and tulips in nearly all the colors of the rainbow. Birds are singing. Even April showers are welcome, compared with the snow that fell less than a month ago.

For KidsPost, spring weather brings a need for artwork. We’re asking readers to help us illustrate spring — sunny, rainy and breezy — for the forecast that appears on our pages 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.
