Also, let them do some simple hands-on process not product art ideas in
your session. I would suggest:
* clay prints (make imprints in a ball of clay, press in paint, and print)
* collage with anything (easy is cotton balls, packing peanuts, glitter,
beads, buttons)
* art tissue on clear contact paper for suncatchers (cut or tear art
tissue into shapes and stick them on the sticky part of clear contact
paper, a half piece. Then fold over the other half of the contact paper
to seal in the tissue.) Punch a hole and hang with yarn loop.
* watercolor salt pictures: draw with glue on cardboard, cover with salt,
shake off extra salt, paint with very wet watercolor paints on the salt
design. No scrubbing....just touch the wet brush to the salt and the salt
soaks it up.
* sewing: sew with yarn (make a needle by wrapping the yarn with a piece
of masking tape at the tip) and sew through holes in Styrofoam grocery
trays. The 'kids' can make their own holes with pencils, tips of
scissors, etc.

Need more, let me know.
Good luck!
Kindergarten teachers are very into being DAP (developmentally
appropriate) so this should go over great!
