It is no secret that sky lanterns are a growing trend when it comes to celebrations. Both small get togethers and large parties are ideal times to incorporate Chinese Hanging Lanterns into the party. In order to maximize enjoyment of the sky lanterns, though, you need to have some ideas on how to use then for the most fun. Plus, you need to know how to use them properly so that you remain safe whenever you use them. Sky lanterns are safe and fun but there are a few common sense precautions that should be taken before releasing them.

Safe Sky Lantern Use for Maximum Fun and Entertainment

Sky lanterns are very safe as long as you take some minor precautions and use them properly. If children will be present they should always be assisted and supervised by an adult. Never leave lit sky lanterns unattended. Sky lanterns are biodegradable and fire resistant in order to be as safe as possible. Each one comes individually wrapped. When removing the wrapping inspect it for damage. Never use a torn or broken paper lantern. There are conditions that are better for use. If it is excessively windy or if there is inclement weather, save the Chinese lanterns for another day when it is calm and pleasant outside.

Make sure there are no obstructions in the way that may pose a risk such as trees, buildings or hay bales. Do not use sky lanterns where it could be mistaken for a distress signal or within close proximity to an airport. If these simple rules are followed, use of flying lanterns is perfectly safe and you can have a lot f fun using them and seeing a beautiful display in the night sky.

The times, occasions and events where you can use Chinese lanterns is limited only by your imagination. Whenever you have a gathering of friends of family to celebrate something, set off some sky lanterns. Some examples of fun uses for sky lanterns include:
