Usage: We often introduce insects by using the generic sign bug. As baby gets more advanced with her signing, we start using more specific signs like bee and ant.

    My son is picking up on so many of these signs–it’s amazing. Could you provide the sign for Cricket? (The bug not the game :))

    Hi Brad,
    Cricket is a pretty complex sign. Instead, consider teaching your baby a combo sign. bug plus violin. Violin is signed by mimicking playing a violin.

    I’d love to know the sign, if there a different sign, for a fly. Like a house fly. My little guy would use it a lot, he’s always pointing them out.

    I want to know if there is a baby sign for ladybug.

    Make a circle around the face using dominant hand with index and center finger curved as if they were the antennae of the lady bug. upon completing a circle around the nose giggle the index and center fingers down and up. Maintain the thumb pointing toward the nose as you do your circle.

    I am a preschool teacher in an older infant classroom. I use Baby Sign Language.com exclusively as a reference to teach my students. I depend on your dictionary and video to learn monthly vocabulary words. I’m so glad I found you.
