12 Best Places to Buy Cute, Comfortable Kids’ Face Masks
August 6, 2020
While many aspects of COVID-19 remain unknown, one certainty is that face coverings have quickly become part of our new normal. Experts are recommending that everyone—including kids who are 2 and older—wear a face mask when out in public to help curb the spread of coronavirus. According to guidelines from the CDC, you should look for a mask that fits snugly, secures with ear loops or ties, has multiple layers of fabric, is breathable and is washable. So where can you buy effective kids’ masks these days? While wearing a face covering may not be something your child is entirely enthusiastic about, the options from these sellers are comfy and most importantly safe—and may make it easier to convince your little one to wear.

Sizes include small, medium and large so you can find the right fit for even your littlest ones.
