DIY Face Masks for Kids

The unfortunate fact of the COVID-19 pandemic is that face masks are becoming required in more and more places and situations. Many people are making their own DIY face masks but most of the available patterns are for adults.

That's why we've searched through the existing mask designs and found 13 DIY Face Masks for Kids. This collection includes masks that are available in multiple sizes or specifically for children. The majority of these children's face masks are easy, fast, stylish, and (most importantly) comfortable.

With back to school around the corner and talk of in-person teaching, it's important that every child have a mask. Even if e-learning continues, when social distancing isn't possible a mask is a must for everyone.

Although PPE is preferred to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC does approve of fabric and homemade face masks and coverings for the general public as the medical-grade equipment should be saved for medical professionals.

Please note: "Cloth face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance." Visit the CDC website or download this helpful PDF to learn more.
