This is a very simple hand game that even little toddlers can master.
There were two blackbirds sitting on a hill,
(hold up one finger on each hand)
One named Jack,
(wiggle one finger on one hand)
The other named Jill.
(wiggle the other finger on the other hand)
Fly away, Jack!
(hide first hand behind your back)
Fly away, Jill!
(hide second hand behind your back)
Come again, Jack!
(bring the first hand round front)
Come again, Jill!
(bring second hand round front)

Children love to play as they learn! Whether that's clapping to the rhythym of the verse, acting out the characters, playing games or creating great artwork!
We would love to hear about games, arts and crafts, fingerplays, anything that you do with your special little one to make nursery rhymes a fun interactive learning activity.
We know our mom's and grandma's have great ways to entertain while teaching their children and grandchildren.
Please share with us those fun learning experiences.
