What to pin in April 2020

You’re probably here to see what’s trending on Pinterest this April, right? Well, we have some tips for you for sure! But first, I want to mention how different of an April this one is. While were in the midst of this whole Covid-19/Coronavirus mayhem, you might want to adjust some of your content for April

However, I do think that regular ole’ April things (like Easter and Gardening) will do pretty good on Pinterest, too! 

Pinterest is a great place for people to come to plan ahead. So I always try to recommend you start pinning things a few months out! Keep that in mind when you read through the list. For example, Father’s Day is June 21 – but it’s a good idea to start creating some content for this holiday so it can start circulating on Pinterest!

Now let’s get starting chatting through our April ideas! 

At-home ideas 

We’re all pretty much stuck at home lately – social distancing and isolating. So this is the perfect time to create some content around what to do while you’re at home! Do you have a subscription box for kids? Create pins and content that speaks to the parent that needs to keep their kids busy with educational things during this time! 

Another idea is to do a round-up of free resources out there for parents! 

Basically, any content related to doing things at home, keeping busy at home, work out from home ideas, etc. will do really well right now! 

I’d avoid mentioning Coronavirus, social distancing, Covid-19, etc. in your Pinterest graphics. Some platforms are monitoring and actually blocking these types of posts to try to ensure false information is not being spread online. Another reason to avoid these phrases and words is because it makes your content not evergreen. When this all passes (hopefully soon!!!), you’ll still want your content to be re-pinned and clicked on. So try to keep your pins general – focusing on the at-home aspect of it all. 

Here are some ideas for at-home content: 

  • At home date ideas
  • Cleaning hacks/products
  • Work at home tips 
  • Homeschool tips 
  • Homeschooling
  • Homeschool schedule
  • At home workouts
  • Photoshoots at home
  • Anniversary ideas for home
  • Celebrating your birthday at home
  • Virtual date ideas
  • Home gym
