Video: Cup in Baby Sign Language

Signing: To sign cup, take your strong hand and wrap your fingers round into a C-shape as if you are holding a cup. Take your weak hand and lay it flat as if it is like a table top. Take the strong hand and place it down on the flat hand.

Imagine you are placing a cup down on a table.

    Good to know how to sign “cup” and other kitchen- or eating-related signs for our kids.

    Very good way of showing baby of understanding the word “cup”. Never thought of using the C-shape and using the other hand as a flat surface to set the cup down on.
