[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

1. Set up a play area with the hose at the start line, and out-of-bounds lines on each side and parallel to the start line about 60 feet away (that's about 20 giant steps).

2. Identify obstacles that the ball should touch and others that it shouldn't on the way to the goal.

3. Take turns using the hose to spray the ball through the course and into a receptacle at the end.

4. If the ball goes over the out-of-bounds lines or touches a no-touch obstacle, you're out for that round.

5. Whoever sprays the ball through the course and into the "hole" the fastest wins.
