Dress Up or Costume

Video: Dress Up in Baby Sign Language

Signing: The sign for dressing up or wearing a costume, is the same as the sign for clothes. You take both hands open and palms facing down, and brush your thumbs on your chest.  To show that you are not wearing normal clothes and that you are playing dress up, you make the motion and your body language more jaunty and up-beat.

Usage: Make the dress up sign before you play a game of dress up.  Baby will quickly make the connection and will then be able to tell you when they want to play at a later time.
