Catch the Dragons tail

Author:  GSLC

Materials needed: handkerchief, Chinese music, cassette or CD player

Play: The boys line up in a single line, each holding onto the waist of the boy in front. The boy
at the end (the tail) has a hanky hanging out of his back pocket. The boys count down together,
“EM”-1, “ER”-2, “SAN”-3, “KO”-GO! The music starts and the boys walk in time to the music.
When the music ends, the first person, who is the Head of the dragon, tries to catch the tail,
(the hanky), on the last person. The whole dragon must remain unbroken. If the dragon breaks,
a new dragon must be formed. If the head player grabs the tail, he may continue to be the head.
If the body breaks before he touches the tail, the head becomes the tail, and the next in line is the
head and so on, until each has had a turn being the “fiery head of the lashing tail”.
