Flowers in Sign Language

Learn how to sign flowers in sign language and keep a look out for nature’s fancy growing things!

1. Sign the singular “flower” (connect all your fingertips together, touch one side of the nose, then the other). Repeat touching each side of the nose a couple of more times to show the plural “flowers”.
2. This sign looks like you are checking out the smell of several flowers. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips

  • Teach sign language using favorite children’s books. As you read together, sign words you know – either printed ones or things that are pictured in the illustrations. Flowers are a great one to use because they appear in the background of many illustrations.
  • Learn about the life cycle of a plant and grow some flowers together. A small plastic cup, some soil, seeds, a sunny window, and water are all you need. Talk about the plant as it grows and predict when you will see the flower.


Flowers. First sign flower. It’s just like you are smelling a flower. Then show lots of flowers. Flowers!
