Dancing - getting them to copy you doing different movements.

Rolling ball to other people and catching a ball rolled to them.

Kicking ball back and forwards.

Head shoulders knees and toes song. (other actuion songs)

Obsticle courses

(depends what space you have etc)

how about drawing on a large scale. Get some old wallpaper, unroll it, and let them draw really large pictures.

agree with giraffe, lots of physical activity. Do they have opportunities to run and climb, play with sand and water, jump and pedal ?
