Ice skating is signed exactly like skate: curve both index fingers mimicking the blades of ice skates, and move both hands at the same time, making side-to-side arcs as in a skating motion.
We use the sign for ice skating when we first introduce our toddler to basic ice skating skills, particularly during winter.
Skating is an advanced motor skill more suitable for toddlers. We teach our little ones the sign for skate in association to older siblings skating, or when we first introduce them to the basics of skating.
