Freezer in Sign Language
Learn how to sign freezer so you can direct children to this important appliance… where the frozen treats are!
1. This is a two part sign. First sign “freeze” by placing hands in front of you, palms down and fingers bent forward, then pulling hands back towards you and tightening fingers into fists.
2. Then bring one hand up about mid-chest height in a fist that looks like it is holding a door handle. Push hand forward and slightly across your chest, like you’re pulling open a door.
3. When you put these two pieces of the sign together you are talking about opening the freezer door! Use this visual to help you remember the sign.
- Activities for children that center around the kitchen can teach good healthy eating habits and lessons about helping out at home. What favorite healthy foods can you make for the freezer together? Popsicle’s are a great place to start – simply combine some fruit and juice and maybe some plain yogurt. Place in Popsicle molds in the freezer. Sign “freezer” as you discuss how the pops are made.
- Try dipping chunks of fruit in a little chocolate and placing on parchment paper in the freezer. Pull them out for a sweet and mostly healthy treat. Ask
your child to go to the freezer (with the sign!) and remember to shut the door after!
Freezer. Sign freeze and open the freezer door. Now you try it. Freezer.
