The xylophone sign looks like you are tapping away on the xylophone. To sign xylophone, make both hands into a fist with the thumb on top of the fingers. Then make short swings up and down with your arms while moving them across your body, as if you are playing the imaginary xylophone with the sticks in your hands.
Okay, I admit that I was just looking for an 'X' word, as there is not that much use for xylophone unless you have that one, rare xylophone-playing toddler! The main use of xylophone is for songs where you are teaching your baby the alphabet, and you need to do the letter 'X' is for xylophone!
Music is an integral part of healthy child development. Xylophones are affordable, simple to teach, and can be introduced as early as 11 months old. Teach the sign for xylophone contextually and contrast it with other signs for musical instruments.
