To do the baby sign for llama, touch the tips of your two middle fingers [the middle finger and the ring finger] to the tip of your thumb on the same dominant hand. Then the index and pinkie fingers stick up to form the ears. If using your right hand, "walk" your llama to the left (or vice versa if you are left-handed). If done right, it kinda' looks like a llama walking in front of you - your arm being the neck.
We mainly use llama when we visit farms, zoos, and when we play with our model animals or use flash cards.
Use the llama flash card in conjunction with the cow and sheep flash cards. Try to teach these cards contextually while visiting a farm or zoo. As your baby gets more advanced, you can introduce the added challenge of adding color. So as well as llama and sheep, you can use blackllama, whitellama, and brownllama as descriptors of the animal’s coat.
