Kids Mask Lanyards
Medical experts unanimously agree that the best mask for your child is the one that your child will wear. You may make it easier to keep your kids mask handy, especially with mask-to-school requirements in place, with a useful lanyard. We chose one of the top rated brands for comfort and softness, making it fun, easy and convenient to wear.
The Sommrefly Sensory Issues brand face mask lanyard is described as made from 100% nylon spandex with a safety release clip. It connects to ear loop type masks with small plastic clips and allows the mask to hang safely on the chest when the mask is not in use. Name tag included.

Kids Filter Masks Replacement Filters
Filter inserts are an easy and convenient way to make your cloth filter mask reusable, by simply replacing the filter insert after it has been used.
These are also a great, comfortable way to achieve filtration in a kid sized mask, particularly if KN95s, KF94s and KN94s are difficult to buy, find or wear. Most filters for child sized masks will fit a standard kid's mask with filter insert pockets.
