Use big pieces of cardboard for the sliding drill. Rotate these drills for a while, then have a scrimmage. Whichever drills you don't use one practice, use the next.
You have nailed it right there.
I have been coaching kids for about the last four years (ages 5-9 during that span). The worst thing you can do to a kid that age is ask he/she to come to practice and make him wait 3-5 minutes without doing anything.
Gotta keep them moving...or else you will lose them to the daisies and butterflies.
