Baby Sign Language for HALLOWEEN!

by Lane Rebelo, LCSW

Holidays and special occasions are a great time to introduce new vocabulary to your little one. Today we’re learning baby sign language for  HALLOWEEN and other Autumn and Halloween signs in baby sign language (using American Sign Language).

It’s Halloween!

It’s Fall! The leaves are changing colors, the days are getting shorter, and there are pumpkins and Halloween decorations everywhere you turn.

Holidays are a great opportunity to introduce new baby sign language vocabulary because there are so many new things to see.

In the fall, everywhere you go you’ll find pumpkins and candy everywhere… costumes and even spooky ghosts…so many opportunities to introduce new words and signs.

Plus there’s nothing I love more than babies in costumes. I mean, seriously! it’s the cutest thing ever!

Using Baby Sign Language to Communicate about New Experiences

Holidays and seasons bring lots of opportunities to teach your baby new signs as babies are naturally curious about the different decorations they see all around them. In the photo below, one of my adorable Tiny Signs students (seriously, how stinkin’ cute is he!?) is signing “BALL!” excitedly on a visit to the local pumpkin patch, letting his mom & dad know that he thinks all the pumpkins look like balls. So clever!
