Two Little Dickey Birds (Fingerplay)

Teach your children this classic fingerplay:

Here are the hand movements, followed by the lyrics below.

Lyrics:

Two little dickey birds sitting on the wall,
(both index fingers in the air, wiggle both of them)
One named Peter,
(wiggle one index finger)
One named Paul.
(wiggle the other finger)
Fly away Peter,
(draw the hand with “the Peter finger” behind you and hide it)
Fly away Paul.
(draw the hand with “the Paul finger” behind you and hide it)
Come back Peter,
(bring the “Peter finger” back to the front)
Come back Paul.
(bring the “Paul finger” back to the front)
