I am new to teaching, and will be teaching spanish once a week for one hour to 8 or less children who are in reception and year 1 (4 to 6 years old). Do you have any ideas to what I can do? I have looked online and have some ideas but more are appreciated, I am quite nervous!

This is my first month ever as a teaching assistant, and part of my contract involves setting up an after school club. I am fluent in Spanish so will be leading the spanish club, by myself. The number of children is unknown but it will be a maximum of 8. My ideas so far, which come from the internet and another teacher who taught spanish, are:
-'Splat' game, where you have 4 colours on a board and one person has to point to the correct colour which will be said in Spanish.
-Head shoulders knees and toes but in Spanish as it isn't just writing on paper
-Learn food names by bringing in snacks and getting them to ask for them in spanish
I have other ideas from websites, but what has worked for you, and what hasn't?
Basically I don't want to bore them with worksheets, and leading a 1 hour class for a few months in Spanish is exciting but also I don't want to let them down, so any ideas are appreciated, thank you :)
