we do a net set go program here that runs for about 6-10 weeks depending on the association running it.  there are heaps of good games to play with them that teach them basic skills.

rob the nest is a great warm up, or bib tag (they have a bib in the back of their shorts that must be taken from them), there is turn the cone over (where you have some semi circle cones that some are up the right way and others up the wrong way and one team has to turn them up the correct way and the other team has to turn them up the other way), pickup the rubbish (bean bags are scattered in 2 defined areas and each team has to pick up the bean bag and throw it into the other teams area), dodge ball played with yoga balls (great for footwork), the game elastics ( you will need parental help for that one), skipping, follow the leader (you do different skills like hopping jumping, crab walking ect...) bounce and catch, then throw in the air and catch (you can add a clap or two before they catch the ball, or a pivot to make it harder), whats the time mr wolf is a good cool down, windows (once they have been taught to catch and throw).  if you need any more ideas let me know. i run a program for 4-5yr olds.  the most important thing is to keep them moving and try and mix things up a bit and progress the skill as you go.
