40 Best Face Masks for Kids (And the Entire Family)

Your kid needs a mask. Whether it’s a run to the grocery store, a bike ride, or thoughts about returning to school, it’s time to stock up on face masks for your kids and family.

The CDC agrees that cloth face masks are one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your family safe by slowing the spread of COVID-19. As we’ve learned, coronavirus is spread through droplets, so wearing a mask reduces your family’s risk.

What should you look for when shopping for kids masks?

Mosts parents agree a comfortable mask, with a breathable fabric, goes a long way in staying on your child’s face. The mask should be kid-sized, i.e smaller than an adult mask.

For additional guidelines, the CDC suggests kids’ masks that have multiple layers, fit snugly around the face, are secured with ties or ear loops, and are machine washable.

Tip: Order both the ear loop and a mask with ties. For long periods of time i.e. all-day wear, kids are more comfortable with the ties than the ear loop.

Many companies are stepping up and offering a variety of options to comply with guidelines, and in super creative ways. From organic cotton and breathable material, to Mickey Mouse and Paw Patrol, keep scrolling to see our favorite options for both kids face masks and adult face masks.
