Kids Can Decorate These Blank Cloth Face Masks Themselves, and Maybe They’ll Actually Wear Them
Free to Be Kids — a children's clothing brand — is trying to inject a little fun into health requirements by selling Decorate-Them-Yourself Face Masks ($20 for three) that little ones can draw on. Over the last few months, we've seen tons of just-for-kids cloth mask options on Etsy as well as brands such as Crayola offering up face coverings in time for back-to-school season and in compliance with the American Academy of Pediatrics's recommendation that children over the age of 2 wear a face mask in public.
"These super soft, double layer cotton jersey knit face coverings feel great, and are a blank canvas for your little one's creative vision!" says the website. "Grab some fabric pens, or even Sharpies, to transform their face coverings into creations they'll be proud to show off all around town. Which means yes, your kids will actually keep them on. Win win."
Per the website, the 6-inch masks are sized for little ones up to the age of 6, but a larger size for big kids and adults is also available. Parents can order a 3-pack or opt to buy in bulk with 25-, 50-, 100-, and 200-packs. Fingers crossed that letting kids release their creative juices will help them keep their masks on!
