Spring is signed exactly like plant, as all flowers, plants, and trees come to life this season: take your non-dominant hand to form the pot by making the ASL sign for C, only it is lying on its side. Then take your dominant hand, forming a flat letter O sign by making all your fingers touch, have it come up through the non-dominant hand's "pot" bottom, and finally open up your fingers as the "plant" passes the top of your non-dominant fist, looking like leaves opening up or a flower blooming.
If you have a garden, a window box with plants, or even just indoor, potted plants, use the spring sign to teach your toddler an appreciation for this season, when nature comes back to life with color and the fragrance of blooming flowers.
Spend as much time with your kids outdoors. Help them plant a vegetable, fruit, or flower garden during spring time.
