FNF always lives up to it's name! This time, we have our annual STARS square dance. Fun activities include square dancing with a caller, crafts and music. If this is you STAR's first visit to FNF, we request a parent or guardian stay with their STAR for the evening.

Kids with special needs (ages 2-14) and their siblings (ages 2-12) make new friends and enjoy all kinds of activities while their parents get a break. The first half of the evening includes square dancing with a caller in the gym, snacks from home and a Bible story. During the second half, children choose from four different stations/rooms: music activities, table-top games and puzzles, crafts, large motor skill physical games (ie. beach balls) and a quiet sensory room.
