Odd question but- signing in “mittens?”

Hi! I am not deaf and I work with kids, I have a very specific question- my costume has big fuzzy mittens (just a thumb and circular hand part.) I also wear a mask so I can’t use any facial expressions and I have limited movement. Think of a big Winnie the Pooh costume. I can easily say “Thank you” and “You’re welcome,” and have used them with the kids, are there any other friendly signs that could be made (and would be little kid appropriate) without fingers? Like most costumed characters, I’m not supposed to verbally talk so I don’t need to be able to hold a conversation, but I’d love to make an effort to make a kid’s day, or even just incorporate some sign in general. (Any signs I would learn I would record for anyone else who wears the suit to use so there is continuity as well.) Thanks in advance!
