With winter almost behind us, the KidsPost weather forecast wants to embrace the coming warmth. But we like to show our readers what it’s like outside, not just tell them.

That’s where you come in. Think about what spring looks like, and put that image on paper. If your art fits with the daily weather forecast, we’ll consider publishing it in KidsPost. Remember, we need art for days that are sunny, cloudy, rainy and windy.

Bright colors work best. You can use paints, markers or whatever art supplies you have, but try to avoid leaving a lot of white space on the page. Be sure to include your full name, age (5 to 13) and home town on the back of your artwork. We also need a note from a parent, guardian or teacher giving permission for your drawing to be used.

Pictures should be sent to Kids­Post, The Washington Post, 1301 K Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. Or have an adult fill out the form here and upload your artwork.
