Mask Hack you will LOVE
No more painful ear loops or lost masks!
Pin HERE for later!
Since my kids are returning to In Person learning we needed to be outfitted with facemasks for each day! Since they get mask breaks, a lunch break, recess and PE, I wanted something that was easy to put on and off and won’t get lost every day!
My mom is quite the sewing genius and always willing to experiment to find the best idea. The ear loops are painful after a few hours and they are easily dropped when not worn around the face. Plus, they don’t create a snug fit for active kids.
We tried a few options including ties and slip knots, which were functional but difficult for my school age kids to operate on their own.
Insert LIGHT BULB MOMENT! Simply using an infant headband, we created a slightly stretchy material that comfortably wraps around the head and easily slides down around the neck. Just cut it open and tack down each side onto the mask! We used 2 on each mask so the kids can adjust it to fit multiple places on their head.
Even better, these are cost effective, readily available, come in fun colors, and truly solve the lost mask problem. For smaller kids, just shorten the length of the band.
There are lots of styles available on Amazon, including these, and cost less than 30¢ each band!
