Sewing Self-Made Face Masks for Children
Since so many contributions for self-made face masks have appeared, we would now like to sew a mask for children. We are going to show you a version with funny animal faces. They will absolutely love wearing these masks!
Should kids even wear masks?
Opinions differ on this matter. In Switzerland, the Federal Office of Public Health issued the following statement: “We currently are not recommending that children wear a face mask, since they are not one of the primary groups being infected. Furthermore, the correct use of masks is often difficult for children.”
Things are different in other countries.
Please always observe the requirements in your country or place of living. In some countries it is required that children wear masks.
Wearing masks is not easy for children, and parents should be note the following points:
Rules for Wearing a Mask
- The mask cannot interfere with the child’s ability to breathe!
- It should not be worn in situations where there is a danger that the child could get caught on something with the mask, such as on a jungle gym.
- The mask must stretch over the chin and nose and should fit snugly.
- Make sure that your child washes their hands before putting the mask on.
- Once in place, the child should touch the mask as little as possible and definitely not constantly remove and replace it.
- When taking the mask off, the child should not grab the front side of it. It is best to only touch the bands or the edge of the mask gently with their fingers.
- After each use, wash the self-made face mask in the washing machine, ideally at a temperature of 90°C.
We hope that our colorful and cheerful masks will help your children have fun while wearing them.
It is, however, important to remember: Wearing a protective face mask can only help contain the COVID-19 pandemic when all other rules (maintaining social distance, hand hygiene, coughing and sneezing etiquette) continue to be followed. A face mask is not protective equipment. Please make sure that your children know this.
