Signing: Soap is signed by taking your weak hand and placing it flat and palm up. Then, place your strong hand a few inches above and flick your fingers down so they touch the palm of your weak hand. The motion looks like you are building up a lather.
Usage: Soap is a good intermediate sign that can be taught for use in the bath, or when toddlers are learning to wash their hands. Learning a sign like soap, can help make these daily routines easier because you child can work with you in getting the task done (lathering up with soap), instead of feeling helpless.
