First things first: Do your kids need to wear face masks? According to the CDC’s guidelines, kids two and older should wear them, at least under adult supervision. And, the CDC is also requiring them for school in the fall for districts able to have in-person classes, so all the more reason to stock up.
If your kids dislike wearing face masks, it might be because masks aren’t the most comfortable thing to wear and they look pretty boring.
Solution? Buy fun, fitted face masks for kids that are comfortable and feature fun designs, be it your child’s favorite Disney character or just really cool prints.
Check out this list to see where you can find face masks for kids without breaking your bank, and download the KCL app for more leads on daily deals.
