Don’t get stuck just looking for pins! There are many ways to search for activities.
•Start with books you already have
•Take a trip to the library
•Look on-line at Barnes and Noble , Amazon, or Google
Pinterest search by book/theme:
•Type your theme or book titles into Pinterest and see what others are doing with the same topic/books
•Think of other ways to describe what you are doing
Look for boards on your theme:
•Pinterest defaults to searching for pins, but you can change it to search for boards on your topic
•Look for party ideas on your theme
Look at who is also pinning the same ideas:
•See if someone else has pinned the same idea you did. Pinterest will tell you what board they pinned it to.
•Look for “Also From” pins on the bottom left of the screen
