Everyone is a compound sign. First, sign every (which is the same as any), then sign number 1. To sign every, form the ASL letter 'A' sign with both hands aligned in front of you, each lying on the pinkie side of the fist and sticking the thumb out, with the non-dominant hand positioned lower than the dominant one. Keeping your non-dominant 'A' fist in place, motion your dominant 'A' hand downward about half a foot's distance until it disappears behind your other hand - making the sign for any - then finish off by signing '1'.
Teach your toddler the everyone sign when you are explaining how everyone in a particular event or grouping is involved in a given activity. "Look, everyone from day care came for your birthday! There's Miss Elsa, and Danny, and the twins..."
Teach your child this sign in context, when showing inclusivity to others in your home, party, neighborhood, or community.
