Spring Arrival Bento

Chinese New Year is about celebrating the arrival of spring. My daughter learned how to make the character for spring at girl scouts the other night, so she drew the char for her lunch today. I put the character upside down in her bento since the character for upside down in Chinese sounds the same as the character for arrival. So upside down spring implies spring has arrived!
This is supposed to look like a bunch of firecrackers on a stick/string.
