The Band-Aid sign is signed just like bandage: taking your forefinger and middle finger on your dominant hand extended, and sliding them over the back of your non-dominant hand. The motion looks like you are applying a band-aid to your hand.
Teach your child the Band-Aid sign when they have a band-aid, then point at the band-aid and make the sign. Since band-aids are a favorite accessory for many fashion-forward babies, this sign is a highly motivating sign, and your baby usually catches on to this one quickly … so be sure to have plenty of spares in your medicine cabinet!
The sign for Band-Aid is helpful when your baby begins to discover a variety of objects related to health. Introduce Band-Aid to a toddler by purchasing colorful, themed child-friendly bandages and using the bandage on yourself and the baby to tackle small scrapes and cuts.
