How can I get better at chipping out of a sand trap while golfing?

Go to the practice green with ten or more practice golf balls. Start two feet from the green and lay your balls about a foot apart. Keep hitting them, one at a time, until every ball is within six feet of the hole. When you can do that, go to the opposite side of the green and line the balls up the same way. Keep hitting the practice balls until every golf ball is within six feet of the hole. Now walk back until you are ten yards from the green and repeat the same process. Every time you can hit all ten balls within six feet, move back another five yards. Ask a friend along so you will have someone to practice with, and see who can get closer. This is a good thing to do year-round, even in the winter when the weather isn’t too cold and there is no snow.
