Video: Boat in Baby Sign Language

Signing: To sign boat, cup your hands together in a boat shape. Then move your hands up and down while extending them forward. The sign should look like a little boat bobbing along in some gentle waves.

This is quite difficult to sign precisely, so you will often seen babies simplify that by pushing their hands together and moving them forward.

Usage: We use boat with a little toy boat that we like to play with in the bath. It is a nice little sign, because the boat bobs along much like the boat in the sign, helping to cement the connection for your baby.
