Hanging Candle Paper Lanterns Safety
Lanterns lit by flame, or flame-lit lanterns, pose more of a hazard than the electrically-lit lanterns. Clearly, keeping your children near fire is a bad idea. For these lanterns, also, place them out of the reach of children. You are bound to find some locations that are at head level which seem like an appealing place to put the lantern because of its easy reach, but you must keep in mind your child climbing on chairs or other objects when determining the safety of the lantern’s potential location. Also, you might accidently bump into it! It is better to place them up higher, out of your easy reach, too. So, if you are using hanging candle lanterns, be sure they are out of the reach of children.
