All Done in Sign Language
Teaching your baby how to sign “all done” is important and will make your life a bit easier, especially around meal time.
1. Hold your hands out in front of you, fingers splayed and pointing forward
2. Your palms should be facing up a few inches apart
3. Twist your wrists so your hands turn down and away
Knowing the sign for ‘all done’ is not only useful when you’re feeding your children, the same sign has other meanings too. Without adding any other signs it can mean:
• Are you done?
• You are done.
• All finished.
• I am done.
• That’s enough!
• Knock it off.
The meaning is changed by the look on your face, the intensity of the way you sign and what you are talking about. It’s a very useful sign.
“Hold your hands up and twist them like you’re pushing everything away! ‘All done!’ ‘All finished!’ Let’s see you sign it.”
