Create your Own Mask at home!
Girl Scouts are always prepared to help! This week we challenge you to learn how to prevent the spread of germs by creating face masks for you and your family. To create your face mask, you will need two common household items:

  • One (1) Bandanna or Large Square Cloth
  • Two (2) Hair Ties

Step 1: Lay your bandana flat on the table.

Step 2: Fold the bandanna hamburger style.

Step 3: Take the bottom portion of the bandanna and fold it towards the middle.

Step 4: Take the top portion of the bandanna and overlap it onto the folded portion from step 3.

Step 5: Take one hair tie and put the left side of the bandanna inside the hair tie.

Step 6: Slide the hair tie to the middle of the bandana.

Step 7: Take the second hair tie and repeat steps 5 and 6 on the right side of the bandana.

Step 8: There are now two holes on each side, with the hair ties in the middle. Lift up the left side and slightly open the hole to place the right side into it.

Step 9: Make sure to place the left side into the right opening, and the right side into the left opening. The pieces should overlap into the middle to create the face mask.

Step 10: Adjust the hair ties on each side of the bandana. One hair tie should be on the left and one hair tie should be on the right

Step 11: Place bandana over face to cover mouth and nose by attaching the bandana behind your ears using both hair ties.

Covering your face using low cost materials from home can be used as a voluntary public measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other germs.
