Everyone loves family time, especially when you have children. It is a great time to combine fun with an opportunity to learn. Using flying lanterns is the ideal way to incorporate both fun and education. You can discuss how sky lanterns work and also about safety precautions. But one of the most enjoyable aspects of launching Chinese lanterns is watching the beautiful display in the night sky. This gives you an incredible opportunity to discuss space, planets and stars with your children. When you have an event or just want to spend time with the family, launching Chinese flying lanterns is a great way to incorporate learning with a fun adventure.

Safety first when using Chinese Hanging Lanterns with children

One of the most important aspects to using Chinese Hanging Lanterns around children is to make sure they are supervised and never left alone with them. Although sky lanterns are safe, they do use flame and this should be used alone with children. So, make sure you supervise and assist your children whenever you use them and go over proper safety precautions with them first so they respect the process and now how to safely use them. Make sure they know that Chinese Hanging Lanterns should not be used near obstructions nor when the weather is windy or rainy.

Get creative with children and personalise your sky lanterns

Individual sky lanterns such as the ones found at can be purchased in different colours singly. This is a great way to purchase one or two lanterns or to add to a set. They come in pink, yellow, blue, red, orange and traditional white. You can have children personalise these by drawing a picture, writing a story or poem with a sharpie pen before launching them into the night sky. Lanterns can be a great creative art project before sending them off.

Learn about the environment with eco lanterns

One of the products we have that we are especially proud of is our eco lanterns found at All our lanterns are biodegradable but the eco lanterns contain no wire whatsoever so biodegrade at an even faster rate. Using these lanterns is a particularly good opening to teach children about the environment and what can be done to be eco friendly and “go green”.

Children can learn about planets, stars and space with Chinese Hanging Lanterns

The best time to launch sky lanterns is at night when you can see the warm glow in the night sky that can be seen for many kilometres. This is a wondrous site for children and a great opportunity to discuss all you see in the night sky. You can discuss the moon, stars, planets and other space related topics. You never know where the conversation can go and it is a great way to get kids interested in the world around them. Don’t worry if your kids ask you a question you do not know the answer to. That’s a great way for you both to learn and a perfect time to go researching on the Internet to get the answer. Use sky lanterns the next time you want to have some family time and incorporate paper lantern fun with a learning experience.
