KidsPost needs your weather art

We can feel winter’s chill in this weather scene by Libby Salopek,7, of McLean, Virginia. (Libby Salopek)

The white stuff is still coming down. It’s nearly March, but we’re stuck in winter. KidsPost is running low on weather art, and we need your help.

You can draw a snowy picture, but what we need more are images for a cold day, a windy day, a rainy day and a cloudy day. What do those look like? Be creative, but remember that bright colors and designs that look good when shrunk 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

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 drawings on in our online weather art gallery.
