Pumpkin game for preschoolers

I saw this on Pinterest (of course) and thought it would be a fun game to play in my evening stortyimes this fall.  The dice (snatched from the blocks in the kid's section of the library) has a pumpkin  on every side.  Each pumpkin has an eye or a nose, or a mouth.  Kids take turns rolling the dice and putting the face together on their pumpkin.  There are two pumpkins on the dice that are plain pumpkins.  If a child rolls the plain pumpkin they have to put one piece of their pumpkin face back.  The game continues on until someone has a pumpkin with two eyes, a nose, and mouth.  Pumpkins and face pieces were all made out of felt.  I used clipart to print out six pumpkins and added the facial feature on the individual pumpkins.  I cut the pieces and mod podged them to the wooden block.
