Where to Buy Face Masks for Kids in Chicago

Kids and parents in Illinois are required to wear face masks under Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive order that began May 1. That doesn’t mean the masks have to be boring. Kids can show the love of their city, their favorite sports team or find a plain color they love thanks to Chicago-area designers. Demand is heavy for masks, so there may be a delay in shipping.

 

 

Pride Masks

Cost: $10

 

If you like Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s #StayHome mask, you can have one of your own. Pride is giving a limited number of masks each day to first responders in Chicago, and the styles vary. All masks come with adjustable elastic straps, allowing you to adjust the knot to your face size.

Cost: $10

 

The best part of these washable masks is not the inclusion of a pocket for a filter, but the strap can be tied around your child’s head (which will avoid complaints about elastic hurting). Small is best for kids and the solid color provides a blank canvas to add an iron-on sticker or emblem.
