I posted about these fun 'Countdown-cookie-chains' last year. So the rest of this will be a re-post:
I've been making these gingerbread man countdown chains with my kids since my oldest two were little. When I started this, I bought a miniature cookie cutter and baked them myself. Now, we just buy them, but the FUN is still the same!
Pull out a very long length of plastic wrap. Cut in half, length wise.
Lay all 25 little men face down.
Pull wrap over on one side all the way down. Then pull the other side over so it looks like:
Then flip whole chain over, so their little faces are facing you.
Use any type of ribbon you want to tie bows in between each gingerbread man.
Hang the chain from any hook, peg, or stocking holder.
