5 ways to get your kids to wear masks

(CNN)Consider it the Challenge of 2020: It's likely easier to put lipstick on a ferret than it is to get some kids to wear face coverings.

The little humans pull and tug at the masks constantly. Kids don't just stop there. They let the tops fall beneath their noses and sometimes even yank the things down below their mouths, just because they can.
Despite all these protests from children in countries where face coverings are new to them, masks are a must.
    In the United States, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all kids over the age of 2 wear face coverings to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
      That means that now is the time to finally get kids on board — if you haven't already — with the new reality. We know kids around the world who already know how to wear masks — it's simply part of their routine when they leave the house.
