Christmas Countdown Ideas

I have seen all kinds of ideas and ways for counting down until Christmas and since today is December 1st, I thought I would start sharing some ideas/finds out there...

The Christmas Tree Countdown from K McKay Designs:

12 Days Advent Ornament Countdown (also from K McKay Designs)

24 Mini Muffin Tin Countdown from Somewhat Simple (with tutorial)
Another Tutorial (with movie) from June Campbell

A Calendar Countdown using an art canvas from Split Coast Stampers

Countdown Blocks from Not So Idle Hands:

I am loving this countdown using a pizza pan from Crafts and Deals!

So clever and cheap...pocket {gum} advent countdown from My Little Mochi. Seriously...ridiculously clever!

If you own 24 Christmas books, (I know I do!) wrap them all up indiviually. Each night have a child pick a book to unwrap and read the story together as a family.

A recipe countdown from Good Things Utah. Yes that's right, it's a recipe box with 25 different treat ideas inside. Each day you take a recipe from the box and make a yummy treat! What a fun new tradition to start! As if keeping those holiday pounds off wasn't hard before! :) (I say while finishing off a cookie!)

Any other cute or clever ideas you have seen and want to share?
