  • Step 3: Next, crumple up your little squares of tissue paper into small balls and glue them around the edge of your Heart.

2 – Pop Up Card ~ The Best Valentine Crafts For Special Needs Kids

For this craft, you will need a piece of red construction paper, a bit of blank white paper, glue, markers, and a cut-out of a heart.

  • Step 1: To make this card, start by folding your white piece of paper in half.
  • Step 2: Next, have your child cut two small lines in the middle of the paper and fold the cut section to pop out of one side.
  • Step 3: Glue a heart onto the cut out to make it “pop” out of the card.

3 – Handprint Heart ~ The Best Valentine Crafts For Special Needs Kids

You will need a large piece of red construction paper, a bit of white construction paper, red paint, glue, and markers for this craft.

  • Step 1: To make this handprint heart, start by gluing your piece of white paper onto your piece of red paper so that the red report makes a border.
  • Step 2: Next, cover your child’s hands in red paint and make handprints so that the bottoms of the palms are connected, and the fingers are on either side to form the shape of a heart.
  • Step 3: Next, draw a heart around the handprints and write your message.

If your child has sensory issues and doesn’t want to make the handprints, you can have your child put the paint on your hands instead, and you can make the handprints.

Another alternative is not to make a lovely card.
