  • Resources for Masks for Children: A list of resources for program staff and families. These resources do not, and are not intended to, prescribe specific guidance about mask wearing for children.
  • Wearing Masks: These scripted stories, with their colorful and fun photographs of children and families, help explain to children the how, why, and when of wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also available in Spanish.
  • Helping Children Understand Emotions When Wearing Masks: These tips and ideas help children identify emotions when faces, our most expressive feature, are covered by a mask. Families and practitioners can use these strategies to let children know that behind the mask, a kind and warm expression is still there.
