Face masks are a part of life now for many of us — including our children. While wearing face coverings is not recommended for kids under the age of 2, due to suffocation risks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does recommend that children over 2 wear masks when they’re in public and at risk of getting closer than 6 feet to anyone who’s not part of their own household.
Masks should fit snugly and cover the mouth and the nose — so for a proper fit, children may need smaller masks than adults. Keep scrolling for a roundup of some of the cutest face masks you can buy for kids.
