"Bluebird, Bluebird" is similar to "Little Bird, Little Bird".

Notes

Re. "Bluebird" vs. "blue bird": this song can be found both ways. The Opies (who wrote about nursery rhymes and folk traditions) have it as "bluebird" and Lomax (who collected folk songs) has it as "blue bird".

Game Instructions

Children stand in a circle holding hands high up in arches (to form the "windows" in the song). One kid is the "Blue Bird" who flies in and out of the arches or "windows". During the second verse, the "bird" chooses a partner by patting him/her on the shoulder. The second kid then follows holding the 1st kids shoulders while they pass through the "windows". Then game continues on until all the kids make a chain and there are only 2 children left forming an arch (or "window". They become the first two bluebirds in the next round.
