Make mask wearing an adventure with these cute and fun designs for kids!
It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Black and brown communities far more that white ones, with our people ending up in the hospital and dying more than any other group. Dealing with the effects of the pandemic have been difficult for adults, so imagine how hard it has been for our Mini’s, who don’t understand the facts, figures and severity of the moment at hand.
As a SugaMama your top priority is making this unprecedented time as comfortable as possible for your little one, but with mask wearing becoming a mandatory normal in many places, figuring out how to get them accustomed to wearing masks when they don’t understand the purpose can be a bit tricky. One way to get them on board is by making mask wearing adventure with colorful and fun fabrics that keep them stylish and safe. From superheroes to natural divas, we’ve rounded up a few face masks that they will love to wear. Bonus? They’re all from Black-owned businesses, because now more than ever we need to support and stay safe, for the culture.
Keeley Studio Reversible Face Mask
Keeley’s handmade masks are going to be a big hit with the mini superheroes in your life. The comics-inspired prints are bright and playful and easily make mask wearing a little more fun. On the more practical side they’re reversible, with a different fabric print on each side. For the kids this means they get to be two superheroes at the same time, for you it’s a helpful way to always know which side was on your kid’s mouth and which was exposed to the air around them. Look, now you’re a superhero too.
Aloha Glamour African Print Face Mask
Wear a mask, and do it for the culture. Aloha Glamour’s super cute African print masks allow your kids to be both stylish and staff.

You can even match your SugaKid’s swag by grabbing an adult version of the same mask. Trust us, neither of you will want to take them off.
