This is my favorite rhyme to do with toddlers these days, as it has lots of hand movements and most toddlers, especially the really young and active older ones, need hand movements to keep them still and focused on the rhyme and me. I get more animated and use the rhyme below. It’s a bit tricky but once you get it, it’s a lifesaver. Get ready though, because they come back loud and at full attention. I usually follow it with another song.
Two little blackbirds sitting on and a hill
One named Jack and one named Jill
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill.
Two little blackbirds sitting on a pole
Fly away fast, fly away slow
Come back fast, come back slow.
Two little black birds sitting on a cloud
One was soft and one was loud
Fly away soft, fly away loud
Come back soft, Come back loud.
