These are the parts you'll need: -Arduino (any kind) -Jumper wires -2 LEDs -2 1k ohm resistor -A breadboard Tools: -Computer

Step 2: Assembling

Picture of Assembling
Take a jumper wire and insert it to pin GND on the Arduino and the other end goes to the negative slot on the breadboard. Then take the LED's shorter side and insert it into the negative slot of the breadboard under the jumper wire. Then, take the longer side and insert into the first space of row 5. Next, take a resistor and insert it into second space of row 5 and the other end and insert it into second space of row 10. Get another jumper wire and insert one end to pin 6 on the Arduino and the other to row 10 first space.

Step 3: Assembling 2

Take your other LED and insert it's shorter lead into the negative slot to the right of row 15. Then take it's other side and put it into row 15 first space. Next, take a resistor and insert it into second space of row 15 and the other end and insert it into second space of row 20. Get another jumper wire and insert one end to pin 7 on the Arduino and the other to row 20 first space.

Step 4: The Code
