"Prästens lilla kråka" is a circle dance that's used for dancing around the Midsummer Festival maypole and around the Christmas Tree. It's also a kids' lap game song.

Game Instructions

Everyone goes in a circle and dances to the left. When "körde" is sung a 2nd time, everyone goes to the center and sits or squats down on the word "dit". Then everyone steps back and sits or squats on the 2nd repetition of "dit". Then everyone goes back to the center of the circle and sits or squats on "diket".

Instructions for Lap Game

1st & 2nd Verses: Gently swing the child from one side and then the other.

3rd and 4th Verses: Opened knees and "drop" the child down and up again (while holding her hands).
