Bubble Wrap Stomp: Just get bubble wrap (pretty inexpensive) and let the kids have a ball stomping on it.
Don't let the Balloon Drop: Fill a bunch of balloons and have the kids try to keep them all in the air by tapping them with their hands.
Mystery GOO: Take a number of gooy items, and put one each in a bag or box, where no one can see what's inside. Then, pass the box around the kids, who are sitting in a circle, and have them feel what's inside. After everyone has had a chance to feel an item, have them guess what it was. We usually do 6-8 items. Ideas include cooked spagetti, olives, play doh, store-bought slime, "hairy" kiwis, etc. We usually keep a box of wipes handy for this one!
