Two little Dicky birds sitting on a wall

Two little dicky birds sitting on a wall,
One named Peter, one named Paul.
Fly away Peter, fly away Paul,
Come back Peter, come back Paul!


With this rhyme, you need to cut two small peaces of paper about 1/2 in the shape of a bird if you can. The you wet them and stick them on two of your finger nails on one hand.

Start by showing your fingers and the Dicky birds (Two little Dicky birds sitting on a wall, One named Peter, one named Paul) Now you throw your hand (with the paper) into the air, but tuck one of your fingers in before it comes back down, and show to the child one of the Dicky Birds have flown away (Fly away Peter).

Do the same again (fly away Paul) and show they have both flown away. Now throw your hand into the air one more and bring back Peter, then bring back Paul..

Dicky = Small
