    20 minutes is a too long to be sitting on the carpet but not quite long enough to achieve much independently. You don't say if you have been given a particular focus, but I wonder if you could include something where the children can be active rather than setting a task that they won't have time to do justice to. Maybe a story or song with lots of actions ... or a finding game?

    How about reading a story then acting part of it out-such as, Rumble in the jungle, then show the children pictures of the animals in the story, and then get them to move as the animal would.
