teaching kids Aikido - can you share ideas

Hello -
We have had a kid's Aikido class at our dojo for about 2 years now. It is going well all-in-all. I have been involved for about the last year.
We spend time working on basic footwork, strikes, ukemi, and such. Sometimes we play games and other times we do basic techniques.

I am wondering if anyone knows of any good web sites or books about teaching children (ages 7 to 14 primarily)? I am wondering how other people run their classes. What seems to work and what over time seems not to really do much.

Thank you,
