โ€

โ€๐Ÿ‘‰ Sign language, teach your child to express candy and thank you
  • "Candy": use your index finger, touch it right under your mouth area next to chin and twisting your finger back and forth.
  • "Thank you": take dominant hand to chin, moving slightly down towards the person you're talking to.
