To sign fire, you stretch out and wiggle your fingers like the flickering flames of a fire. Form both hands in the open, ASL number 5 sign, with your fingers wiggling back and forth. Then cycle your hand up and down in vertical circles.
If you have a fireplace or a gas stove, your baby will often be intrigued by the flames, which is a good time to introduce the sign fire. As your baby gets older, you can link the concepts of fire and hot, as well as be careful.
We use the sign for fire mainly as a warning sign. Show examples by lighting a candle, pointing to the fireplace, or when cooking barbecue outside.
