Teaching your Baby to Sign Art

To teach your baby to sign art, always do the sign while verbally saying the word in a sentence.

Let’s make some art together! Start making cool art with your baby.

Look! Van Gough made this art. Do you like to make art? Point to his art.

I love the art you made me. Hold up the cutest artwork you have ever gotten.

Try to be consistent, so your baby will make the association between the sign and art. By using the sign in a sentence, your baby is also exposed to verbal language and more vocabulary. Awesome!
