These Face Shields for Kids Are Reusable, Durable, and Actually Cute
Shop Story

Parents have been stocking up on face masks for their kids since the Centers for Disease Control recommended everyone over the age of 2 wear one when outside. We’ve seen retailers like Old Navy, Cuboats, and Disney step up to the plate to start creating adorable face masks for kids, but as parents, we know just how challenging it can be to get kids to wear them. That’s why some parents are turning to face shields as an alternative to face masks as they can be a bit more comfortable for kids to wear. 


Face shields are a good option for kids because they cover the entire face and make it harder for young people to touch or scratch their nose, mouth, and eyes. Also, if your child wears glasses, a face shield will eliminate the annoying fogging from masks and make it a bit easier to breathe. Plus, just like face masks, face shields come in adorable designs that kids will love.

Parents might also opt for a face shield because they’re really easy to clean and can be wiped down after each use without being thrown into the washing machine. While shields are not meant to be a complete substitute for cloth face coverings to slow the spread of COVID-19, they’re a helpful addition to your preventative measures—especially if you’re having a particularly tough time getting your child to stop touching his or her face while in public.


To use them properly, the CDC recommends, “If face shields are used without a mask, they should wrap around the sides of the wearer’s face and extend to below the chin.” It also recommends disposable face shields be worn only once and reusable face shields be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Please note that while face shields don’t come in direct contact with the face, the CDC does not recommend infants or newborns wear one.
