Have your say

Hi there Chipper Club fans. Welcome to this week’s cracking eggs-travaganza of a page!

If you love puzzles, competitions and jokes, this is the place for you.

And today, my friends, I have a great Easter-themed colouring-in activity to keep you all busy as you enter your second week of the school holidays.

Are you looking forward to tucking into all your delicious Easter eggs? To get you in the mood, I’ve printed the outline of a giant-sized Easter egg here today and what I need you to do is give it a fabulous wrapper. Decorate the picture using whatever design and colour scheme takes your fancy. Once you’ve finished you can send your work of art to me by post to the usual address – Chipper (features), The News Centre, The News, Hilsea, Portsmouth, PO2 9SX.

As much as I can’t wait to see your pictures, remember, dogs like me can’t eat chocolate. It’s not good for us so if you want to give your canine chum a treat don’t make it chocolate.

A special Chipper Club shout-out to Phoebe Lytton. She was 8 on Monday, April 4, but we missed her off the list. Sorry about that Phoebe.

That’s it this week so I’ll say chip chip for now! Love Chipper
