Hi there, I would say about 40" long (this is the average length of the strap for child's bag with adjustable strap that I've seen around). You may also take the measurements, simply sling the measuring tape over their shoulder to where you want the bag to sit, then add about 15"- 20" for adjustment. Thank you!
