Cute designs could help convince kids to wear masks

School is reopening, and kids are going to be seeing their friends more often, too. Making sure they have a face mask that fits them and ensures their safety and your peace of mind, is vital.

Brands like Nordstrom and Old Navy are making masks for kids. But if you want to support two local brands keeping your kids safe, check out these two brands.

Jemma Keshishian and Kristine Megrikyan transformed their Los Angeles fabric company, Patterns World, into a face mask manufacturer, but their masks are for kids!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all children over the age of 2 wear a face covering while in public.

However, as most parents probably know by now, that is easier said than done. But cute designs could help with the convincing.

They are made with three layers of organic cotton, are washable, and comfortable!

Another Angeleno is making masks for the older kids in your home too.

As a pediatrician, Dr. Cara Natterson knows how life-saving these masks can be.
It's why she started making masks for her company Oomla.

"The goal is to give kids something comfortable and cute that they will wear because the best thing they could do is put on a mask when they leave home," says Dr. Natterson.

Schools can order the kids' masks in bulk with the school logo or mascot.
And both companies, Kids Masks, and Oomla are giving a face mask for free to a child in need for every mask you purchase.
