Any ideas for a mixed ability warm up drill?

I help coach around 30 players, they are of completely differing abilities and ages. For a while I have been using the same first drill/warm up of getting into groups of 4/5 players and having cones in a line in front of them which they have to use different methods of getting the ball to and then passing back to the rest of the team from the 1st cone, then next time from the 2nd cone (and so on) I find this works ok but would like a new/more fun way to get them ready after our run and dynamic stretches. Any help/suggestions gratefully received.

Have you tried the old game of british bulldog. Have players line up on the twenty five and get them to dribble ball to the other twenty five. Have several players in the middle tackling.

You can vary speed, skill and types of dribbling and tackles used
