Signing: Battery in ASL is signed by taking both hands and extending your bent middle finger and your bent index finger from a fist. Bump the extended fingers from each hand against each other. It is like you are making each hand into battery, and touching them against each other.
Usage: Toys and batteries seem to got together like chocolate and ice cream. With older children you can teach them how to insert and remove batteries from toys or the remote control. This little activity will help them develop their fine motor skills. But, remember that small children and small batteries don’t mix!
