With our newest mask mandates in place, I can't help but think of ways to make it all fun...So, I came up with a friendly reminder!
He's super quick and easy to make, and a fun way to remember to "Mask Up!" I'll be using this one as a keychain, but I'm also making more, in different colors, to hang on our tree this year ;)
