As kids across the nation are headed back to school full-time and coronavirus continues to surge, face masks are at the top of everyone's supplies list. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends that children over the age of two wear a face mask, and its updated guidelines for K–12 Schools states that all students, teachers, and staff should wear a mask for in-person learning, regardless of vaccination status.

If you're wondering what some of the best face masks for kids are, thousands of parents and teachers are recommending disposable options from Amazon. Many shoppers prefer these disposable varieties to cloth masks because they don't have to be laundered and they're lightweight, making them easier for children to wear for longer periods of time. Teachers and parents also love that kids can keep a couple in their bags just in case they forget to wear one or their mask needs to be swapped out during the day.

Here are the six best disposable face masks for kids on Amazon, according to ratings and reviews:
