Child Size Face Masks

Face masks made for children about 4 to 11 years old. Made in USA.

We are making child size and pre-teen/petite adult size face masks. They are made the same way we make our adult size masks, with three layers of woven fabric and a side-entry filter pocket. These face masks are constructed with cotton/Lycra ear loops.

The child size face mask is very small, and we will refer to it as size Small in our catalog. It fits kids from about 4 years old to about 11 years old. In this photo you can see four different ages wearing the same size mask.

Here is a size comparison of our Small mask next to our size L mask, which fits most adults.

 It's tiny and cute! The filter pocket really is not functional in this small size.

We also are making a size Medium face mask for kids around 12 to petite adults and we are working on getting photos to help show the size. Here are all three sizes stacked together:

What Size Does My Child Need?

The feedback we've received is that our size small fits about ages  4 to 11. Our medium fits around age 12 and up and will provide a better fit for petite adults. We hope these photos will help you to understand the sizes.

 Care and Cleaning

We recommend putting face masks in a mesh lingerie bag and washing in cold water. You can hang to dry, flat dry or tumble dry. We do not recommend bleach at all, as there is not a CDC recommendation to add bleach and it will change toe appearance of the fabric. Using hot water can affect the color of the fabric and cause shrinking, and a hot dryer can also cause shrinking. 

Our face mask blog post offers more information on washing our face masks and cleaning face masks in general. We made a follow-up post with more information on managing face masks here.
