Clouds in Sign Language

Learn how to sign clouds in ASL (American Sign Language), which is just a bit different in plural form than the sign for the singular “cloud”.

1. Bring both hands up about eye height, each hand curled into a c-shape.
2. Start with the sides of the thumbs and pointers together – so the c’s are touching.
3. Bring the c-shaped hands around in front of you, drawing them in a bumpy long oval (like the fluffy shape of a few clouds together!), until they meet on the other side with the sides of the pinkies touching.
4. This sign looks just like a string of fluffy clouds in the sky. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.
