Teaching your Baby to Sign Candy

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

Here’s your candy. If safe and okay with your doctor, give your baby some candy.

Do you see the candy on her shirt? Point to the candy icon on the shirt.

No, you may not have any candy. Shake your head no as you sign candy, and don’t give in! 😉

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