To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that people wear cloth face masks in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (like in the toilet paper aisle at the grocery store or in your doctor's waiting room). And per the Academy of Pediatrics, this recommendation extends to kids older than two years old (babies and toddlers under the age of two should not wear masks, which could pose a choking hazard).

While you could sew your own mask, for those of us lacking in craft skills (*raises hand*), there are plenty of cute options available to purchase. Note: According to the CDC, surgical masks or N-95 respirators should be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders. Here are nine not at all scary and actually kind of cute face masks for kids.
