Help me help my mom use Pinterest

My mom asked me to teach her (again) how to use Pinterest. I'm happy to show her (again), but I want to explain it to her in a way that will make sense to her.

She understands the general concept of Pinterest, but she is easily distracted and confused by the navigation (for lack of a better word). You can really go down a rabbit hole with Pinterest, and she gets confused by where she is, how she got to that pin and how she can get back to where she was. Then she gets frustrated and doesn't use Pinterest for 6 months. I almost feel silly asking this question, because it seems so obvious to me how Pinterest works. Can you help me think of an analogy or some other way to explain Pinterest to my 68 year old mother?
