How to occupy 15 non-english-speaking preschoolers/kindergarteners for four hours a day without toys, games, books, or crafts supplies?

I volunteered to teach English to students in Africa but classes are now over and I have three weeks left. I've been assigned to a daycare center where I'm only required to play with the kids.
There are plenty of games that require no supplies, and also songs, but there is the language barrier to consider.
We have paper and drinking straws and I've got scissors on my pocket knife and that's about it. Simple origami comes to mind. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
