Pretend to cry and rub eyes




Pretend to suck your thumb





Hold hand out expectantly






Hold phone next to ear







Point side to side








Hold your back in apparent pain









(draw finger across throat)










Make halo above head with hands











Growl and make horns on head with fingers
