Hello again all you Chipsters! I hope you’ve had a good half-term holiday, getting up to all sorts and tiring out your mums and dads.

Last week I set you a little Chipper Club challenge for the break to colour in that loveable elephant Dumbo (as the film of the same name is one of four Disney classics being shown at the Kings Theatre in Southsea).

I knew you wouldn’t let old Chipper down and I’ve really enjoyed having a look at your designs done with pencils and felt tips.

A big shout out to the artists behind these six pictures - (clockwise from top left) Chipster 1977 Ruby Warwick aged 4, Chipster Daisy Warren-Smith aged 7 (who has applied to join the Chipper Club but hasn’t got her number yet), Chipster 918 Keira Godwin, Chipster 457 Freddy Cairn aged 10, Chipster 1580 Melissa Willett aged 6 and Chipster 967 Nadia Greenaway. Nice work!

Now before I go I wanted to tell you about the great competition I’ve got for you this week.

Just answer a simple question and you could win £50 to spend at 99p Stores, where there’s a great range of Olympic-themed items. You could pretend you’ve won a gold medal!

Anyway, that’s it for today chums so until next Saturday I’ll say chip chip.

Love Chipper X
