Today, 08 August, 2010 is the yearly Date to Create, a fun and festive day designed to get people to be creative and inspired into making amazing things, both big and small. Sky lanterns work very well as a vessel for creativity, providing a great surface to work with that then can be sent aloft to inspire others. Whether planning a Date to Create event for your family or helping to plan a community event, floating Chinese Hanging Lanterns can become the hit of the event. Gather friends, family, coworkers and neighbors and make this date to create the best one yet.

Whether you choose our traditional Chinese lanterns or the more modern cylindrical lanterns from, you are buying a quality product made of paper, making them a great medium for artwork for Date to Create. Whether decorated with sharpies or other permanent marker or with acrylic paints, floating lanterns can start the day off with a fun place to use one’s creativity and end the day with the launch of these Chinese Hanging Lanterns into the evening sky. Kids will really enjoy using sky lanterns as part of their creative projects. Drawing, painting and writing stories or poems on the sky lanterns are perfect ideas for the Date to Create.

For Date to Create or for any other occasion, sky lanterns are a safe and environmentally safe way to make a bold, public statement. Rather than releasing balloons that can take months to degrade, floating lanterns degrade in only a few weeks and all of’s lanterns are wire free, assuring the both degrade quickly when exposed to the elements and won’t hurt animals including livestock.

For Date to Create, consider using floating lanterns in a number of ways. Simply launching them, especially if launched in a mix of colours, is creative in its own right. Decorating them with artwork, poetry or even song lyrics are all great ways to show that you are participating in this fun day and evening of creativity in action as well and also gives you a place to show off the creative projects you have done.

For the serious artist on Date to Create, our white sky lanterns are the best medium. The glow yellow thanks to the flame inside and with some creativity can be made to look like anything from a flying witch to even more like a UFO than they already do. In fact, there have actually been reports over the past few years of UFO’s that have turned out to simply be floating Chinese lanterns. Your imagination is the limit to the possibilities on Date to Create.

Launching sky lanterns into the evening or night sky is easy but should be done with adult supervision. For Date to Create, children will be involved on the creative side but should be, at the very least, closely supervised during the launch of the floating lanterns into the sky. The fuel cells in all of our lanterns are now built in so there is no mess or assembly prior to launch.
