To sign restaurant, form the ASL letter 'R' with your dominant hand. Then use your 'R' hand to simulate wiping down the far side of the corner of your mouth while not touching your face, then repeating this on the nearer corner of your mouth. It's as if you are wiping the corners of your mouth with your napkin, after a scrumptious meal!
Restaurant is a fun sign to teach our toddlers, as they usually enjoy their favorite spaghetti or mac and cheese, plus a generous "serving" of table mat coloring pages and crayons on the side!
This is a really fun sign to teach a toddler. It is specially entertaining once they discover restaurants that feature a play area.
