Video: House in Baby Sign Language

Signing: The house sign is made by outlining the shape of a simple house. Extend your two hands, then starting at the roof, outline the slanting roof line – then the vertical walls (We don’t usually outline the ground).

Usage: We use the sign for house whenever we return home or re-enter the house after playing in the garden. There is a separate sign for home, but house is close enough. We also use house to refer to other homes.

    Could you add the sign for divorced? I really think that would be very helpful for a lot of families in today’s society!


    (BTW I absolutely love your site!)

    ADMIN-Hi Rachael,
    The concept of divorce is pretty advanced for a baby. Likewise we do not feature married or single. As a child develops comprehension you may want to introduce him or her to other ASL words using age-appropriate resources.

    What is the sign for “home”?

    ADMIN – Hi Abby,

    The sign for “home” is made by bringing your fingers and thumb together and touching your cheek at the side of your mouth. Then move your hand an inch or two toward your ear and touch your cheek again.
