Pinterest is the new mecca for us creative types. Love decorating? There are boards for that. Love books? You can showcase your favorites. Need style/fashion/life inspiration? You’ll find it all. Spending time on this site brings us back to the days of making collages and dream boards, and we’re not ashamed to say we’re obsessed. Whether you’re already pinning to win or haven’t taken the plunge yet, these 50 parents (see the full list here) will wow and entertain you with their boards — we know this because we follow them (and think you should too). When choosing our favorite 50 parents on Pinterest, we focused on the overall quality of their page, not solely on how many followers or boards they have. Are their boards engaging? Helpful? Unique? Like any major list, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down, so please, if we forgot someone you love please nominate him or her here. Happy Pinning! — Amy Levin-Epstein & Dara Pettinelli

The What’s What: Pinterest not only inspires, but it can also offer solutions. Kelly’s Pinterest page is a perfect example. On “Food My Toddler Will Actually Eat” she shares recipes from around the web that will woo the wee set, like snack necklaces and eggs baked in peppers (so cute, and so healthy!). And on “Wrap it Up” she shares some of her own tricks of the gift-wrapping trade. Highlight: If you’re really into organizing, you’ll compulsively repin the pictures on her “OCD Organization” board.
The Mama: Kelly is passionate about many things, all of which she reveals on her eponymous blog: raising multilingual kids, the urban lifestyle, organic beauty, social media, and business. She resides in San Francisco with her very tall husband and two relatively small daughters.
