About No NoN-cents Nanna’s felt products for young children:

No Non-cents Nanna creates her own simple patterns to go along with popular early childhood finger plays. (See below.)

Nanna encourages the children to use theri fingers first. Then, use the pieces for magic Bubble; Busy Books; Quiet Time.

When learning a first or 2nd language visually seeing and feeling a “word” helps in the learning process.

She believes children need simple shapes with familiar items in a child friendly medium to explore as they imitate what they see the adults doing. That is why she created food on felt along with basic shapes on primary colors.

  • Each piece is “uniquely different” hand cut and sewn.

Why does No Non-cents Nanna  not strive for a product with artistic perfection.

  1. Helps children to accept the world and people around them as we are: not cookie cutterperfectis OK.
  2. Simpe product- not exactly perfect-keeps the cost down for every one especially when children only want to use their imagination in play.


Lyrics to Finger Plays that relate to the pieces in the set.


The Apple Tree

Way up high in the apple tree,

(Point up high )

Five red apples looked at me.

(Hold up five fingers)

I shook that tree as hard as I could,

(Pretend to shake the tree with both hands)

Down came an apple,

(Wiggle fingers down from the air )

Mmmm, it was good.

(Rub tummy!)

Repeat with four, three, two, and one apple “smiled at me.”


Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
First one said “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
Second one said “There are witches in the air,”
Third one said ” we don’t care!”
Fourth one said “oh it’s just Halloween fun.”
Fifth one said “let’s run let’s run!”
Ooo ooo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.


I Can Count

I can count. Want to see?

Here’s my fingers, 1 2 3. (hold up one hand, count fingers with other hand)
Four and five, this hand is done.

Now I’ll count the other one!
Six, seven, eight and nine.

Just one more, I’m doing fine. (using other hand to count)
The last little finger is number ten.

Now I’ll count them all again: 1 2 3 4 5 6 78 9 10.

Show me one hand.

Show me one finger.

Wiggle one nose
Touch one arm.

Shake one head.

Sit one body down.

Show me two hands.

Wiggle two fingers.

Shake two arms
Touch two eyes. Cover two ears.

But sit one body down.


(Once children have learned this routine try substiuting one apple, one pumpkin, one triangle or one square.The chidlren can take turns holding up the little pieces.)

Now it is your turn:
