These Cloth Face Masks in Fun Prints and Designs Will Make Coronavirus a Little Less Scary for Kids
by Bethany Braun-Silva
In recent months, we’ve had to adjust to several new normals, like homeschooling our kids and social distancing from friends and family. It has been a challenging time, especially for children. With new recommendations from the CDC that everyone wear a face mask out in public, older kids may be feeling scared, while younger ones, who don’t understand, may just not want to wear one. But given the state of the world, wearing a face mask outside is absolutely essential (and a requirement in some places).
That’s why we’re thankful for online retailers like Zazzle that are selling hundreds of face masks kids won’t totally despise. Kids can choose from a number of cool prints like cute cats, baseball art, magical unicorns, trendy tie-dye and glittery sequins. There’s even a Baby Shark dupe that might fool an unsuspecting toddler. Many of the masks can even be customized with your child’s name.
In addition to the fun designs and prints, kids can also customize their own face mask from scratch by uploading an image of their choosing and adding text. The face masks start at $12.95, and you can choose from cotton or polyester fabric.
All of these face masks on Zazzle are reusable and machine-washable, with over-the-ear straps to provide a comfortable fit for kids. And while they’re safe enough to use on their own, they also feature filter slots for layering in more protection. Right now, you will receive 15 percent off on all of Zazzle’s cloth face masks when you use the code TUESDAYZDEAL at checkout.
Below, take a look at our five favorite designs that make dealing with this scary time a little less scary for kids.
