Baby Sign Language: Avocado

Avocados are a healthy food for young children. Teach your baby the signs for the word avocado in baby sign language with the following descriptions and videos. American Sign Language lacks a sign for avocado, opting to fingerspell the word instead. However, I created my own sign to use with my daughter by mixing the signs for green and vegetable. You may use either sign for avocado depending on your personal preference.


Begin with the sign for green. Hold the signed letter G in front of the chest. Rotate the wrist back and forth twice. Then sign vegetable. Form the letter V of the sign language alphabet by holding up the index and middle fingers. Touch the tip of the index finger to the side of the mouth. Rotate the hand over the lips to touch the tip of the middle finger to the other side of the mouth.


Fingerspell A-V-O-C-A-D-O of the fingerspelling alphabet.
