My kids have learned how to do basic sign language (primarily from watching Signing Time videos) and while it’s great to have them express themselves in a fun and easy way, it also means I too had to learn sign language. And, to really understand them, so did Grandma, Grandpa, Daddy, Grammy, etc. For those few essential words, like milk, no, hurt and change, try using the Roo-minder Rings Laminated ASL Cards available at Hop to Signaroo.
Roo-minder Rings Laminated ASL Cards are 24 laminated, sturdy 4×5 cards, which contain key signs for babies and toddlers. A safety and comfort as well as a mealtime set are available. All of the cards are attached with a hinged ring, and can be attached to a stroller, diaper bag, or a high chair. The set is perfect for caretakers who don’t know ASL – they can just reference the set when needed!
