Pumpkin finger puppet/lollipop covers

I crocheted some halloween pumpkins that fit over small lollipops. Once the lollipop is revealed, the pumpkin can then be used as a finger puppet. I made one... thought it was so darn caute..... that I made 20 more for my grandson's preschool class. Here is the pattern if anyone wants to make some.
Pumpkin crocheted pattern:
Back
Round 1: With orange yarn, ch 4, 11 dc in 4th ch from hook, sl st to join in top of beg ch. (12)
Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 sc in each dc around, sl st to join in beg sc, fasten off (24)
Front
Round 1: Rep round 1 of back. (12)
Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 sc in each dc around, sl st to join in beg sc. (24)
Round 3: Place wrong side of front and back together, working through both thicknesses, sl st in each next 18 sc, leaving rem 6 sc unworked for bottom opening for lollipop.
Green stem
Row 1: Attach green yarn in 6th sl st of Rnd 3, sl st 2 sts, sc in each next 2 sts, ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next 2 chs, sc in same st as last sc, sc in next st, sl st in next 2 sts, fasten off. hide all yarn tails~
Finish up the pumpkin by cutting black felt facial features, adding wiggly eyes or felt eyes. Insert a small lollipop into the pumpkins opening. Taaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaa pumpkin lollipop covers/ finger puppets.
