These Kids’ Face Masks Have a Secret Feature That Makes Them Perfect for Wearing to School
by Bethany Braun-Silva
Adding several face masks to your cart, whether in person or online, has become commonplace these days as people continue to attempt to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. But getting a kid to wear a face mask can be a struggle for some parents. Luckily, the Kenneth Cole Straw-Ready Face Masks for Kids addresses one significant hurdle when it comes to making face masks comfortable and convenient for children.
The face masks feature a covered vent that allows kids to drink from a straw without having to slide their face mask on and off their faces. Kids who are back in class have to wear a face mask all day and this one makes it easier to take a sip of water or juice, which might not seem like a big deal to some, but for kids, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference!

The masks even come with their own reusable metal straw, straw cleaner, and antimicrobial storage pouch. For kids who find wearing a mask too hot, these are made with HQ SmartTemp technology to avoid overheating when wearing.
In addition to being a practical option for kids going to school in-person, that mask is also very effective in blocking the spread of germs. It’s made with Antibacterial HeiQ V-block Technology, which means the fabric can kill germs and viruses in just 30 minutes. The masks also have moisture control capabilities and can filter out small particles in the air.
Kenneth Cole also makes several other masks for kids, including Woven Face Masks, that are lightweight and breathable, Premium Cotton Face Masks, and V-Block Neoprene Face Masks, that are water-repellent. All the masks come in packs of three and range in price from $24.99-$34.99. The retailer makes similar masks for adults and handy mask lanyards that are available for pre-order now.
