Arduino: Soldering LEDs and Switch

So far I’ve soldered 5 leds and one pushbutton to some wire. I wanted to use two pushbuttons and 6 leds but I ran out of wire and furthermore I don’t think it will be possible to figure out how to program both switches. I was trying to write code last night that would do it, but ended up not writing anything useful.

The code I do have can turn 6 leds on and off using the pushbutton. But this isn’t all that interesting or cool.  To try to make it a little bit more interesting, I want to make the leds blink while they’re on. I haven’t written code for that, which is what I’m going to try right now.

Here is how I soldered the LEDs to make sure they wouldn’t come off. Not the most wonderful soldering job, but it works!
