Celebrate Halloween safely with these face masks that work with your kids’ costume

We're still hoping to celebrate Halloween this year and these spooky face coverings keep with the spirit of the season without compromising safety.

Like most things in 2020, it’s hard to know how Halloween will look this year. But, it is still possible for your kids to celebrate the season. Whether you take your mini monsters for a spooky walk around the block Halloween night or you have little ghouls attending school where masks are mandatory, these protective face coverings do double-duty as Halloween makeup to go with their costume.
