Candy is signed by taking your index finger and touching it just under the mouth area on one side of your chin. Twist the finger back-and-forth. We remember this sign, because it looks a little like you are drilling your tooth - the consequence of eating too much candy!
Candy is a popular sign with toddlers, because it allows them to request something they like. Remember, when your baby requests candy, you don't need to automatically give it to them. If you want to turn down the request, acknowledge the request but then firmly tell them that they cannot have candy now.
We use candy during the holidays, birthday parties, or when we decide it is appropriate to introduce babies to sweet treats.
