Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign picnic in ASL

  • Plan a picnic together. Let your child choose some of her favorite foods to pack and assist in preparation and packing. You can go somewhere special, or just enjoy the backyard. Practice your sign for picnic as you prepare!
  • Song games for kids often teach a skill – such as memory! Play “I’m Going on the Picnic”. The first person starts in a sing-song voice, “I’m going on a picnic and I am bringing (choose item)!” The next person says, “I’m going on a picnic and I am bringing (item first person said) AND (a new item)”. Keep going until you can no longer remember the list of things people are bringing. Sign picnic each time!
