Find disposable and cloth options for little faces.
Updated . What changed?
Important note:The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to urge Americans to wear cloth face coverings, with CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield affirming they are “the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus."
As the World Health Organization (WHO) updates its guidance on wearing masks, parents may be wondering where they can find disposable or cloth face masks that fit their children’s faces — and don’t look quite so scary as regular medical masks.
We continue to update this page with in-stock face mask options specifically designed for kids.

American-made face masks for kids
If you’re looking for made-in-USA masks for your kids, try options from these brands:
Do kids need to wear face masks?
WHO recommends people wear face masks in public where social distancing measures can’t be followed — though it does not give specific guidance for children. But the CDC recommends all adults and children over the age of two wear a face mask while out in public spaces when it’s impossible to stay at least six feet away from others. Some states such as Alabama, California, Illinois, Massachusetts and others now require that children ages two and older wear a face mask in public.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) cautions that children younger than two should not wear facial coverings or masks.
What kind of mask should my kid wear?
Options are fairly limited for children with Etsy and other other makers offering larger selections for kids. Most options widely available online are cloth, machine-washable masks. However, limited disposable masks for kids are also available. To create a DIY cloth mask, you can use a T-shirt to create an effective barrier.
What about for children with special health needs?
AAP recommends that high risk or severely immunocompromised children should wear an N95 mask. The families of these children are also encouraged to wear surgical masks if they are sick.
What if my child doesn’t want to wear a mask?
AAP recommends parents practice wearing masks at home before going out to get your children used to the idea. Parents could also try putting a mask on their child’s favorite stuffed animal or toy character, decorating a mask or showing their child pictures of other children wearing masks. If your child doesn’t understand the need for masks, focus on the idea of germs and explain that sometimes people wear masks when they are sick, and when they are better, they don’t need to wear them anymore.
You could also surprise your child with a mask featuring their favorite Disney character or in their favorite color from one of the retailers listed here.
