Help with Arduino sound/spray Answered

Hey guys, I need some help.

I'm working on making a horse costume for an event. The horse will be out interacting with public. I want to have speakers in the cheeks that play pre-programmed sounds and I also want it to be able to "sneeeze" I've never worked with arduino before, but I really would like to try and I would like some help or some ideas.

The way I'm hoping to have this done is to have the sounds activated by buttons that are close to my fingers so i can just move a finger to get the them, and have the sounds play out the speakers in the cheeks. Also, what I want is when I push a certain button I would like the horse to make the huffing sound and spray water out of it's nose. (I'm going to have a fan in the nose for ventilation, and I'd like it to just spray through the van so that it mists a person)

Can someone help with with ideas of:
1) how I  can program the separate sounds
2) How to program each sound to a different button
and 3) How to program is so that when I push one of the buttons it will simultaneously mist and make the sound.

Please remember I'm new to Arduino, so as "dumbed down" as possible would be great. If there's any 'tables up that I may have missed that could help me with this, it would be much appreciated if you could link them to me.

Many thanks!
