Museum

Museum is a compound sign in the sense that you make the basic ASL sign for house, but you do it with both hands in the shape of the ASL letter M.

The letter M is signed by holding up your dominant hand, palm facing out, with all your fingers curled into your palm. Then tuck your thumb between your ring and pinkie fingers. This sign looks like the small letter 'm', with the 3 fingers' bumps reminding us of the letter written in cursive.

Flash Card

This is a useful flash card taught best in conjunction with art, music, science, or geological flash cards. Of course, nothing beats having an actual museum experience, so try to arrange for a visit to a museum with your toddler as soon as they start showing interest in art work or artifacts from various disciplines.
