How To Make A Face Mask For Your Kids

We now know that the CDC recommends that we wear face masks, or face coverings when out in public.

Kids older than two years old should be wearing a face covering when going out in public, as well as adults.

But, adult face masks might swallow up the face of the child — especially if the kid is on the smaller side.

That is easily remedied. A few simple measurement changes, and kids can have their own masks, too.

It’s still important that the mask fit properly — over their nose, and around their chin.

It’s also better if you include some kind of filter in the mask — a coffee filter, a paper towel, a vacuum bag — just make sure they can easily breathe.

Whatever material you choose to use for your mask, Leah Day, on YouTube recommends measuring your — fabric, sock, bandana, etc — 8 inches by 11 inches in size.
