We found the best face masks for kids!
While many families are sheltering in place at home to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, there are times when going outside is unavoidable, whether it’s for essential items or to get some fresh air with your kids. While it’s important to remain a safe distance of six feet from others, more recently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) also recommended that everyone wear a face mask when going outside, even children.
Wearing a mask can be scary for some kids, especially those who don’t understand what’s going on. If your child is hesitant to wear a medical mask, the CDC says cloth covering works just as well. They even provide step-by-step instructions to make your own sewn or non-sewn face-covering using cotton fabric from items like a t-shirt or bandana.
Please note that the CDC does not recommend face masks or cloth coverings on children under the age of 2 and suggests cleaning your mask in the washing machine frequently. We know these times are challenging, and getting your kids to cover their faces outside, in the springtime no less, is no easy task. To make it a little easier for you, we rounded up some kid-friendly face masks, coverings and scarves you can shop online.
