  1. Wash the mask before the first wearing using unscented soap.  Wash it at least once a week or more often if soiled.
  2. Experiment with the straps, and adjust as needed.
  3. Can’t get the straps just-right?  Sew buttons into a hairband or baseball cap for the straps.
  4. Provide distractions such as gum if your child tends to chew on the mask.
  5. Select a mask with a favorite character or animal.  Let your child name the mask!
