By now, everyone on the streets looks a tad better and 20 years younger since everyone’s masked up.

For us adults, wearing a mask isn’t an issue—just put it on and ta-da: everything’s fine.

But it’d be different for kids.

Anyone above 2 years old would need to wear a mask in public, and while the authorities can’t send a 3-year-old kid to jail for 6 months or fine the poor child $300, they can take action against his or her parents or guardians.

Video Shows How to Resize Normal Face Masks to Kids’ Masks in 1 Min

There are a few videos showing how to alter a normal mask to a kid’s mask, and all of them use the same manner: fold the sides of the mask, tie the straps and you’d be able to adjust the size of the mask easily.

Tie a knot on the straps. Don’t worry, you can do it in any knot as long as it’s secure. It must be a dead knot so don’t think of tying it like you’re tying your shoelaces.

Step 3:

“Open up” the mask—it should protrude out more than usual as what you’ve done is to essentially create more space between the mouth and the mask.

From then on, you can adjust it accordingly.

Here’s another example with the exact same manner, and this time, it’s more for someone whose head is small instead of a kid.
