  1. Cut the water bottle or milk carton lengthwise, make sure that the side that you will use as the "dragon boat" is a bit larger.
  2. Draw a head and tail of a dragon on some craft paper. Use crayons or colored markers to color the head and tail.
  3. Cut out the head and tail of the dragon. Also cut out some other shapes like circles, squares and triangles to help decorate your "Dragon Boat"
  4. Glue the head of the dragon to the top part and glue the tail to the bottom part of your "boat". Also decorate your boat with the different shapes you cut out. You can also color the boat with crayons or markers. 
  5. Take the bendable drinking straws and bend it. Now glue them to the sides of you boat to represent the oars of the boat.
  6. Be sure to let the glue dry completely before using your "dragon boat" in the water or else everything will fall apart.

This is a book for kids, families, and teachers who’d like to get more out of their visit to Chinatown than an “I escaped Alcatraz” t-shirt or oversized pencil. It’s a guide to what makes Chinese culture, well, “Chinese.” It covers almost everything, from how to order in a restaurant, and what not to do with chopsticks, to how to write characters in Chinese and how to make potstickers. It tells about herbal medicine shops, temples, and tearooms.


Now your are ready to try your boat! You now can use it and celebrate The Dragon Boat Festival with your child.
