Happy Thanksgiving! Learning Activities over the Holidays
November 21, 2022

The holidays are upon us, and many have time off work or school to fill with relaxation, social gatherings, and plenty of free time. Why not improve some skills or try something new during the season and start next year off even better than before? Not only will you improve yourself, but you will also have plenty of fun at the same time.

1. Free Cooking Sites to Expand Your Kitchen Skills

Whether you need to know how to roast the perfect turkey, plate up an impressive collection of holiday cookies, or just want to expand your knowledge of kitchen techniques, free cooking sites can get you there. The best options include AllRecipes, Yummly, and The Food Network, but you can find many others to choose from. Do you need extra help with cooking skills and not just another amazing recipe to try? The Institute of Culinary Education now offers free virtual classes for different topics like Thanksgiving pie and more.

2. Free Online Games to Play with Out-of-Town Friends and Family

If you cannot physically get together with friends and family this year, you can still have fun together by playing games online. While video game consoles and PC platforms like Steam have some free options, you can also try Addicting Games, Arkadium, BigFish, and Pogo, which have been around for many years. You can find almost every type of computer-based game on these from card games and board games to massively multiplayer open (MMO) games, action games, and educational games. It is a great way to spend time with people from a distance and still have tons of fun.

3. Free Photo Management Tools to Capture and Share Memories

Whether you grab snapshots and selfies with your phone or have a pro-level digital camera, you need a way to organize your pictures and enhance them for sharing purposes. Everyone wants to see holiday photos, especially if they cannot travel to meet up with friends and family this year. Some of the best free photo management tools online today include DigiKam and Zoner Photo Studio, which also offer lots of editing capabilities, and the built-in photos app from Microsoft Windows.
