i need squash and stretch excercises

i'm in the beginning of my first term of teaching 2D animation, and i'm trying to find good in-class exercises for my students to do for each of the 12 principles of animation. so wednesday's class is 'squash and stretch'.

i was wondering if anyone had any ideas besides the bouncing ball. i plan on doing the bouncing ball (of 3 different weights), and then extending that to a jumping frog. does anyone have suggestions beyond that?

Something that rears back in a stretch to anticipate, then stretches as it follows through and takes off-- cars, etc.
