  • Buckets
  • Hose and water

Step 1: Make sure each player has his or her own fabric friend.

Step 2: Give each player enough room to bathe that animal.

Step 3: Start the clock, and have the players get to work wetting and soaping their animals.

Step 4: Have them make sure the entire animal is covered in suds, and then hose it down and check their time. The quickest groomer wins the race.
