Hanging coloured lights
Lighting a beautiful lantern or candle
Releasing flowers or flower petals into a stream or lake
Flying a kite, or creating a streamer or banner
Planting a tree or a flower
Creating flying wish papers
Painting a rock or stepping stone for your garden
Feeding the birds
Building a cairn (a stack of stones built as a memorial)
