Video: Out in Baby Sign Language

Signing: Out begins by making you non-dominant hand into a cup. Then start with your dominant hand, fingers touching and inside the cup. Make the sign by moving your dominant hand fingers from the starting position outside the cup.

You can make more specific signs for out, depending on what you are taking something out of. For example taking something out of a drawer, is signed by making a motion as if you were opening a drawer then taking your dominant hand and bring it out of the imaginary drawer.

The sign for out, is the opposite as the sign of in.
