Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Best Cloth Face Masks for Kids?

Kids are superheroes for enduring the COVID-19 pandemic, and now they have the gear to prove it. Face masks for kids are easily the most important back-to-school item this year, but they are also among the most challenging. We looked at face masks for kids, pored over scientific studies, spoke with health experts and researchers, and tested the finalists with a panel of 10 kids, ages 3 to 10.

The best face masks for kids is one that fits and that your child will be able to wear for most of the day, experts say.

What you need to know about face masks for kids?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all children over the age of 2 wear a face covering while in public. However, as most parents probably know by now, that is easier said than done.

It can be tough to help kids adjust to new routines and convincing them to wear a face mask can be particularly challenging.

“Younger children in particular, can find them frightening,” Dr. Tovah Klein, director of the Barnard College Center for Toddler Development. “For many children, putting a mask on can feel new and intrusive, which can cause challenges.”

Picking up a cheery, colorful design might make wearing a face mask for kids less intimidating for young children.

“For any child who is hesitant to wear a mask, making them child-friendly could be quite attractive. It also makes masks seem less threatening to a child if they have a child motif to them.”

How to get children to wear face mask for kids?

Parenting expert and psychologist Laura Markham said parental attitudes and actions are paramount in getting children to wear masks. “If you always wear one when you are out, they’ll want to wear a mask,” she said. While working on this guide, I discovered that my 3-year-old especially likes wearing light blue masks because they remind him of the surgical masks my husband wears at work: “I look like Daddy,” he says, beaming.

Explain to your child that wearing a mask is about protecting other people, like older relatives, who could get very sick from people who don’t wear a mask around them. Markham recommended telling kids that “this is a way we show that we’re caring for other people.” And to make it fun, you could say, “We’re superheroes, just like superheroes wear masks, we’re protecting other people. Let’s look for other people who are superheroes too.” It’s important to start small and work up to longer periods, Markham said. She recommended starting in your home, perhaps with a game like “guess my emotion” a twist on charades in which everyone in the family puts on a mask, and then you each take turns acting out an emotion while others guess what it could be. We tried this with my 3- and 6-year-olds, and we had fun using our whole bodies to show feelings like “frustrated,” “excited,” and “bored.” We also tried Bill Nye ‘s makeshift way to “show” that a mask is working by taking turns trying to blow out a candle while wearing each of the masks we tested.

A good time to practice wearing a face mask for kids is while sitting still is when a child is doing a quiet activity like watching videos or listening to a story. These small sessions will give you an opportunity to troubleshoot the mask and find ways to make it comfier.

How to use face masks for kids?

Children are reportedly at lower risk for the illness, but not immune and recent studies show that young children “carry just as much of the coronavirus in their noses as older children and adults.” Many people who have COVID-19, including kids, don’t show symptoms, so wearing a face mask for kids can reduce the possibility that someone who’s asymptomatic might pass on the virus.

Encouraging your kids to wear a face mask outside will encourage other preventative measures, like washing their hands and social distancing, said Johnson. Before school starts, practice with your child putting on the face mask for kids and taking it off with clean hands.

“It’s important to find a mask that fits your child’s face so they’re not constantly adjusting it and touching their face in the process,” she said. “Modeling mask wearing is also important; children are more likely to wear their own mask if they see the adults around them doing so.” Practicing mask etiquette is equally important if your children are participating in remote school, as they’ll need to wear one for trips outside the home, Johnson said.

Otherwise, you should follow the general guidance on face masks: The CDC has outlined five criteria to keep in mind.

Face masks should fit snugly and comfortably They must be secured with ties or ear loops They should comprise multiple fabric layers You should be able to breathe without restriction while wearing the face mask You should be able to wash the face masks without causing damage or losing the face mask’s shape The same guidelines for adult masks adhere to face masks for kids: Masks should have two layers of breathable fabric and fit snugly to their face. Face masks for kids should also be easy to remove and your child should be able to breathe unhindered, said Davies, who added a child-specific precaution.

“There’s a need for supervision when wearing, particularly for younger children, since looping anything around the head and neck is potentially a strangulation risk.”
