It’s heating up in Washington. Pull out the shorts! Lather on the sunscreen! Head to the pool! And draw KidsPost some summertime weather art!

You sent us pictures of spring flowers and April showers, but what do June, July and August look like? Think about the weather heading our way and get creative.

For us to consider your drawing, we need your full name, age 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 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 on in our online weather art gallery.
