I found this way cute idea to countdown to Christmas with a muffin tin! My kids would love this! Put some yummy candies behind each number or a fun activity to do each day. SOoo cute and easy. :) You can find two different looks and instructions here and here. These would make fun gifts too. The muffin tins are less than $5 at Walmart and I am sure you have some cute scrapbooking paper laying around right?
