Design a colourful protective face mask for children

Fun motifs that kids will love

In many countries, it’s currently stipulated or recommended that children should wear a protective face mask when they go outside to the shops or to school. But they can be uncomfortable to wear. What’s more, getting kids to put on a plain, standard mask can be quite a challenge. So why not make the best of the situation and decorate them with fun designs? The edding Funtastics textile markers for children are just right for this. Available in a set of five vibrant colours, these child-friendly pens are really easy to use, providing plenty of colouring fun. We’ve a selection of motifs suitable for children, and they’re all easy to copy. Alternatively, kids can simply use their own imagination. When the design is finished, iron the motif on the no-steam setting to make it wash-resistant up to 60°C. Always follow the latest hygiene guidelines when wearing and caring for your mask.
