This is the easy one. Switch on/off your loads connecting your arduino board to a relay board like this one:

You can switch on/off up to 8 loads each within this limits AC 250V/10A or DC 30V/10A. Connect arduino pins from 2 to 8 to the relay board channels 1 to 8 and also VCC and GND arduino pins to VCC/GND pins
