There’s a lot of uncertainty going into this school year. One thing is for sure, though: Kids attending in-person classes need to wear a face mask to help protect themselves and others from COVID-19.
To make sure your kids will actually wear their masks all day, get them ones that fit their personalities that they’ll actually want to show off. Make sure they’re comfortable and fit their faces properly, too, or they’ll be tugging at them nonstop.
We’ve seen face masks for kids come in all sorts of fun designs, whether that’s interesting patterns or themes from popular children’s TV shows and movies. Just make sure your kids know that their masks should only be worn by them.
You gon send your kid to school with the Paw Patrol mask and he gon come home with a Spider Man mask because he made a trade at lunch. Whole school gon be shut down the next day.
