Music is a great way to connect with others. Start the #30DaySongChallenge to share your favorite tunes. Every day has a different prompt that you have to choose a song for. Most people are keeping up with this challenge by posting daily on their story. You can circle which day you're on and link the song through the "Music" sticker on IG stories. 

Until Tomorrow


A post shared by Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) on

Posts with the caption "Until Tomorrow" are all over instagram right now. They typically accompany an embarrasing picture that is not your standard Insta-worthy shot. Why? The challenge is to keep the picture up for 24 hours, then delete it. If you're up for the challenge, pick a funny throwback or silly selfie and keep it on your feed #UntilTomorrow.

Quarantine Pillow Challenge

Ever worn a pillow as a dress? Now is the time! This challenge is so much fun. It sparks creativity while giving everyone a good laugh. Find a pillow, belt, and any other accesories you need to make your own stylish pillow outfit.

See A Dog, Send A Dog


How we’re all feeling right now, probably. #seeadogsendadog

If you love posting pictures of your pets, this is the challenge for you. It's simple, if you see someone post a picture of their dog, post one of yours. But of course you don't have to wait for someone else to start the challenge. Post a pic of your pup and tag your friends to do the same!
