The sign for lion is like a lion running its paw through its own mane. Make your hand into a claw shape with your fingers curved and apart. Take your hand, and with the palm down, run it from above the front of your forehead down toward the back of your head.
Animal signs like lion are always fun and popular with babies. Pretend to be a lion, clawing and roaring. Then say the word lion while doing the sign.
Make a big lion’s roar before you do the sign and say the word. “Roooooaaar … it’s a lion!”
