To do the kangaroo sign, you make your hands like the paws of a kangaroo and hop them along. Start by taking both hands and making into a paw shape, holding the fingers and thumbs together. Then take your hands and bounce them forward in little hops.
The kangaroo sign is always a favorite. It is a great part of any animal game or song, particularly because the sign also teaches children a little about the animal and is a lot of fun. You will notice that most children cannot help but do a full body bounce when they do the kangaroo sign. You can tell which adults are kids at heart by seeing how they do the kangaroo sign.
Do some bouncing around as you teach the kangaroo sign. Adding that dimension of physicality helps your baby remember, and is a great way to engage your baby.
