    Default Masks for kids, again... Post your new finds!

    School starts in three weeks. We have a fair stash of masks, but in light of the current state of things, I find myself wanting to find better masks! What are you using for the upcoming school year? I'm less worried about DS1 and DS2 who have been vaccinated. But I'm worried about DS3(9) and DD(7) who are not eligible for vaccination!

    We have used surgical style disposable masks. We got two batches from Amazon and recently got a case of them from Costco. I don't much like the Costco ones as they don't seem to fit well. They're supposed to be 20% smaller than adult masks and they gape around DD's ears. Although they do come with mask adjusters...maybe I'll have to play around with those.

    Would love any recommendations and especially links to masks you love!

    Thanks for starting this. We did cloth masks all last year but I'd love to find paper kid masks that would work well.

    The only kind of masks my kids will wear are 32 degrees. Costco sold them last year but I haven’t seen them for several months and I’m getting worried!

    Our hands down favorite cloth/reuseable masks are the Athleta everyday pleated style. DD2 (11yr) wears the kid version. DD1 (14) and I wear the adult version. I machine wash and line dry them. They are adjustable and have the nose wire.

    DD1 also wears standard adult disposable surgical masks and DD2 has a kid size she likes...I'll have to check the brand and report back.

I'm amazed.

    We have used Bluna for kids a couple of times. They fit very well and are very breathable. I think they were recommended here? The only problem is they are $3/mask. If we put them in a paper bag for a week, I wonder if we can re-use?

    We have the Costco surgical ones, because my DS is really sensitive to smell and would never wear the cloth ones after they had been washed (even in unscented detergent). My 7 yo DD likes to twist the ear loops around to help it fit a bit better but they have big-ish wide faces for their ages (half Chinese).

    We also liked Happy Masks over the winter so I may pull those out again, but they are pricey, and have seemed too warm for summer.

    Not as affordable as Costco but cheaper than Covid I'm sure. My DS2 likes these as well.

    My kids actually have these...from Costco, lol. They like them. They're comfortable.

    ETA: Didn't see the PP mentioned she couldn't find them there!

    We have been using these for church! My kids complain that they smell? Church is only 2 hours so I make them make do. And yes, very expensive for daily use but maybe that's what we're going to need now?

    We use these. We store them in numbered paper bags after use to use again the following week.
