In the 2 1/2 hours you should be able to complete 2 bars of soap and at least 1 dryer balls in basic multi colours. What you actually finish will depend on how detailed you get with any additional designs on your soap and balls.

A big towel to help with keeping the water off the floor.
A medium sized bowl or container that can hold soapy water while you felt.
