Finding the right masks to protect your child at school is crucial — kids are now getting infected at a rate of 62 per 100,000. And, as most parents know, you need an arsenal of masks at the ready given that they're easily lost, dirtied or temporarily misplaced.

Well, here's an effective, affordable and colorful option to add to your must-have mask list: Popular mask maker Vida has a line of KN95 (the govenment-approved gold standard) masks for kids. Right now you can get a 10-pack of these highly protective masks for just $35.

KN95 masks have received the blessing of the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration thanks to their high filtration efficiency.

Vida's KN95 masks are specially designed to give kids a comfortable, safe option that they can wear for an entire school day. Vida's masks, which are recommended for kids aged three and up, are made of five layers and have a filtration efficiency of at least 94 percent.

These masks come in four different colors: basic black and white, along with light pink and light blue, all of them featuring a discreet, stylish polka-dot pattern

And, while you're probably focused on protection when you shop for a mask, it's nice to know that Vida provides a prepaid return label so you can ship your masks back for recycling when you're done using them.

"My child felt comfortable when using the KN95 mask," said one conscientious parent. "He was able to breathe with no difficulty, and is able to use it all day at school with no problems." Said another, "Fit well on my children who are 4 and 6. Well constructed and consistent!" She added: "Consistent is very important when purchasing things in bulk".

And while these come ten to a pack and all four colors are in stock, Vida's masks are incredibly popular, and they tend to go fast. If you're in the market for more masks for the little ones in your life, stock up now.
