Gap Kids Unisex Face Mask

The Best Cloth Face Masks for Kids

The best mask is one that fits and that your child will be able to wear for most of the day, experts say. That means no single mask will work for all kids, and finding the right one for your child may take a lot of trial and error. We also can’t tell you which masks will definitely be the most effective at preventing the spread of coronavirus. But our research and testing has allowed us to identify a handful of kids masks that we think are good options to try, can be easily ordered online, and should ship fairly quickly. (If you’re looking for one for yourself, check out the advice in our guide to choosing adult face masks.)

Our pick

Gap Kids Unisex Face Mask

Gap Kids Unisex Face Mask

A pleated crowd-pleaser

This soft, breathable three-layer mask fit (and pleased) kids in a range of ages. Made from woven cotton, it has a nose-bridge wire and longer ear loops, which helped it fit the faces of older kids.

Buying Options

$15 from Gap
(pack of 3)
City Threads Face Mask

City Threads Face Mask

Soft as a favorite T-shirt

This knit mask is the softest we tried; it feels like a favorite T-shirt. Though it’s made from only two layers of material, this mask feels dense. It comes in many colors and multiple sizes, but some kids couldn’t get a good fit.

Buying Options

$10 from Amazon
Scout & Indiana Kids Face Mask

Scout & Indiana Kids Face Mask

Charming prints, filter pocket

This two-layer, woven cotton mask has a filter pocket and adjustable ear loops, and it’s available in a selection of cheery, fun prints. This mask is cut a bit shorter, though, and it fit our younger testers better than our older ones.

Buying Options

$10 from Scout & Indiana

Budget pick

Old Navy Kids Mask

Old Navy Kids Mask

Basic and inexpensive

This basic pleated mask is made from three layers of woven cotton and comes in a range of prints and colors. This was the best cheap mask we tried, and so it’s a good one to stock up on.

Buying Options

$13 from Old Navy
(pack of 5)

We recommend the pleated Gap Kids Unisex Face Mask. It has a nose-bridge wire, which helps achieve a good fit, and was well liked by kids ages 4 to 10 in our tests. We also recommend the comfy, cone-shaped City Threads Face Mask, which was the softest we tried and comes in multiple kid sizes; the hand-made, cone-shaped Scout & Indiana Kids Face Mask (the only one of our picks that has a filter pocket and comes in fun, colorful patterns); and the basic, inexpensive, pleated Old Navy Kids Mask, which is good for stocking up.
