There are two signs for ride, so use the one that matches the vehicle you are riding. To show that you are riding a car, form a horizontal 'C' sign with your non-dominant hand, then take your dominant hand and form a curved 'V' sign, which simulates the legs of a person, as you sit your upside-down 'V' on the thumb end, or "seat", of the "car".
To signify that you are riding a horse or a motorbike, form a flat palm with your dominant hand and make it stand on its side, then take your inverted 'V' hand again but this time, straddle the non-dominant hand with the "legs" of your inverted 'V' hand.
Ride is another fun sign to teach your child, as kids get excited over road trips (as long as they're not too long). Teach them the sign as you prepare them for a trip to the park, restaurant, or shopping center.
The sign for ride has many applications in the life of a baby. From riding the radio flyer to going in the car, or enjoying a carousel visit.
