Remember the good old times when we only needed face masks for the occasional haze? Now that COVID-19 still on the prowl, face masks are needed for everyone in the family – including kids. However, every parent knows that getting a mask on children isn’t as easy as it sounds. On top of kids making a fuss over the scratchy material, masks that are too big come dangerously close to poking the eyes. 

Not sure where to get reusable kid-sized masks? Here are 10 online stores in Singapore where you can get masks made for kids
