Masks are becoming a requirement in most municipalities across Ontario for anyone over the age of 2 or 3. Getting a kid to wear a mask when you are indoors or unable to physically distance is a huge undertaking—honestly, I’d rather wrestle a wet raccoon into a diaper.
But it is necessary and is a bylaw depending on where you live. So getting kids on board with masks is another task that we parents have to undertake.
Thankfully, there are some amazing mask designers out there who are creating fun masks sized perfectly for kids. I recommend letting your kids help pick out their masks—if they are into the pattern or colours that are used, they might be more likely to opt into wearing their mask when needed.
We’ve rounded up 10+ places to get kid’s masks delivered to your door in Canada.
These masks are made in Toronto using a sustainable stretch bamboo material. You can have them printed with your choice of silkscreen print and they are available in a kids’ size as well.
Normally a curated monthly subscription box, Lite Box is now selling The Cutting Edge cloth masks for kids on their site.

The masks are pleated and have soft polyester jersey knit ear loops to ensure comfort and durability.
This solid black mask is perfect for kids who like to keep things simple but comfortable. On average, these masks fit kids aged 2 to 7 and they tie around the head and neck with stretchy ties. We love that the outer layer is made of a tough fabric, while the lining is a cotton and spandex blend, making it breathable and comfy.
