I’m one of those moms who always has a giant purse filled with every possible thing my three kids could need. Snacks, toys, candy, a first-aid kit – you name it. But as COVID-19 became the new normal for our family, I realized my bottomless bag wasn’t ideal for “mask storage.” The safest thing was for the kids to wear them at all times (yeah right), but the reality was … my kids needed a way to hold their own mask, take it on and off as needed, and NOT lose it. But let’s be real…there is NO WAY my three, five and nine-year-olds could hold on to a face mask for 5 minutes without it ending up on the floor.
And then it hit me … I needed a strap that would snap to the ear loops of the face mask so the kids could hang the mask around their neck like a necklace when it wasn’t on their face. I did a quick online search – certain I’d find this gadget and order a few for my whole family. (Afterall, my husband can’t hold onto anything on his own either.) Much to my surprise … it didn’t exist. Anywhere. I realized I had just invented the Face Mask Friend!
