When my children were small, I remember how difficult it was to get them to wear a hat in the sun. I’m sure it’s no easier to get young children to wear a mask. In Texas it’s actually required by a state mandate for anyone over 2 years of age. I think that, even if it weren’t required by law, I would want my child to be protected from contracting Covid-19 and to protect those around them that are at risk of complications from this novel CoronaVirus. Please leave a comment below if you have young children and let us know how you are managing this.
I think that one way to get your kids to keep their masks on would be, of course, to make it fun. I know that kids love to play dress up and a mask could simply be part of a costume. I designed one I thought little girls would probably like.
A kitty cat! Of course this design could be used for a bunny, a unicorn, a puppy; you get the idea. For boys I thought that superheros might be a good choice. Maybe add a cape or a utility belt. I’m just brainstorming here, but if you have any suggestions share them in the comments below. I’d love to get some feedback on these ideas!
