Are there any HTML/CSS templates available out there, with guidelines on desired jQuery functionality?

I've been working through the JavaScript courses for a while, and I recently finished the jQuery Basics course. I am always looking for more chances to practice alone -- Treehouse is great, and I'm also taking advantage of the "freemium" services over Codecademy, but I'd love to take a look at a 'finished' set of HTML/CSS files and practice implementing some user functionality with them.

I'm already planning to use jQuery to re-write the pure JavaScript "To-Do" app completed during one of the JavaScript courses; I'm also planning to use HTML, CSS and jQuery to re-write a "FunFacts" app that I wrote as part of a Swift 2.0 course. This will keep me occupied for now, but my question is this:

Is there a place online where we can find HTML/CSS templates that include brief instructions for functionality, and then download them for practicing jQuery? Andrew Chalkey has us working on mini-projects that could well have been handed over to us by front-end developers, and I'd love some live practice of that kind.

Hi Kofi, thanks for that.

I'm actually already on Codepen, although I haven't posted anything just yet. Exactly what would I be searching for on the site? Do they have a section specifically for what I've described above?

Thanks for responding!
