Juice in Sign Language

Learn how to sign juice so your child can ask for this favorite drink.

1. Bring one hand up about head height. Extend the pinky finger and tuck the rest of the fingers into your palm.
2. Swoop the pinky finger through the air in a J-shape
3. If you use your right hand, swoop to the left. If you use your left hand, swoop to the right.
4. J is for juice – and this sign looks just like the sign for the letter J too! Use this phonemic clue to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Teaching sign language to babies is easy when you start with something they love and use often – such as food and drink! Each time you offer juice, pair it with the sign.
  • Once children begin to understand a couple of signs for drinks (such as milk and water), give your child a choice and have him tell you which he’d prefer by using the sign.

Raise your little pinky finger and swoop it like a J for juice. Juice. Show me juice!
