Baby Sign Language: Brother and Sister

Teach your baby the signs for the words brother and sister in baby sign language with the following descriptions and videos.

Brother

Hold one hand in the shape of the letter L in front of the chest with the thumb pointing up. With the other hand, begin with the sign for boy. Form a flattened C shape with the thumb and fingers. Open and close the fingers in front of the forehead to mimic the motion of grasping the rim of a baseball cap. Then form the hand into a signed letter L. Tap the second L on top of the first L.

Sister

Hold one hand in the shape of the letter L in front of the chest with the thumb pointing up. With the other hand, begin with the sign for girl. Form the hand into a fist with the thumb sticking up. Rub the thumb on the face from the cheek to the chin. Then form the hand into a signed letter L. Tap the second L on top of the first L.
