As children make their way back to school in the time of COVID-19, there is an ever-growing need for them to be fully prepared with a mask that fits perfectly and is very comfortable.

With the current climate, it is also important that we buy reusable face coverings rather than single-use plastic ones. Therefore, to help you with your decision and to make sure your child is ready, we have put together a handy list of the best face masks for kids that are suited to smaller sizes and are all reusable. Many have adjustable ear loops or nose pieces so that you can ensure a secure fit for your little one no matter where they go.
