See video how it works!, has a variation on lyrics.

Works best with 8-14 people.One child is chosen as the Leader.Other children stand in a circle, holding hands, with arms raised to form arches.Leader weaves in and out of the arches, everyone singing

In and out of the dusty bluebells,In and out of the dusty bluebells,In and out of the dusty bluebells,Who shall be my partner?When one verse of that is gone, the Leader stops and the circle sings:Give a little pit-a-pat on the shoulder,Give a little pit-a-pat on the shoulder,Give a little pit-a-pat on the shoulder,Who shall be your partner?

Leader pats someone (Child 2) on the shoulder. Child2 drops out of circle (circle closes up) and child 2 holds hands with Leader; the 2 children weave together, everyone singing first verse of Dusty Bluebells.

Stop and repeat 2nd verse (pit-a-pat...), to choose child 3.Eventually the chain is too long and the circle is too small to continue.Repeat with Inlicia leader = one of the children not chosen previously.
