Rat is signed very similarly to mouse, except you need to form the ASL letter 'R' with your dominant hand. Then taking your 'R' hand, brush it off the tip of your nose. It is like you are emphasizing the pointy nose of a rat.
Teach your toddler the sign for rat when you actually see one in pictures or on video...but hopefully, not popping up uninvited in your house!
