I am a child care counselor with adolescents on a D&A unit. One structured activity that I have used due to similar situation as yours is kind of like charades. Each child gets a chance to act out a hobby or sport that they enjoy. When a member of the group thinks that they know what it is they can join that person in that activity(charade). Eventually when most of the kids have joined that person they can tell what activity they thought the person was acting out. At the end of the group we discuss nonverbal communication. And I emphasize how your actions can sometimes be completely different from your words. Hope this can be a useful idea for you.
