Bored is signed by touching your dominant hand's pointer finger to the side of your nose, then as you move your pointer or index away from your face, you pivot your hand such that the inside of your fist is facing you. Be sure to sign bored along with the accompanying facial expression and tone of voice!
Teach your child the bored sign when your toddler is bored! Then proceed to sign activities, games, and exercises so they can see that they have tons of fun options.
This is a useful flash card taught best in conjunction with other emotions, particularly the contrasting ones, so that your toddler is trained early on that they can easily switch up from a sad or bored state to a livelier, happier one.
