The sign for fan is made by forming your dominant hand into a fist with your index finger extended. Place the hand above your head, making small circles, like a ceiling fan going round and round.

SIGN USAGE

Fan is a great sign for babies, because babies tend to be fascinated with rotating overhead fans. Make the fan sign when you switch the fan on, or when you see your baby focusing on the fan.

    My daughter loves doing this sign. She makes the sign and we are supposed to switch the fan on and off.

    How do you sign the word fan. My baby loves the fans around our house.

    ADMIN – Hi FJPL,

    To sign fan, you take your dominant hand and pointing upward, move it around in circular motions in the air.

    Hello, I am interested in baby language, the website is great. Thank you for teaching us, here in Hungary there is no other way to learn them. Can you add more signs, please? Thank you again.

    Yours, Anna
