As soon as Thursday passes by we will all be getting ready for Christmas. To help folks celebrate Christmas, I will be showing you "how to draw a nutcracker for kids", step by step. This is one item or object that is highly associated with Christmas. These solider like wooden statues are dressed in a uniform that is colored green, red, yellow and black. There is usually a lever in the back of the statue that enables you to open his mouth. The whole purpose of the Nutcracker is to actually crack open nuts during the winter holiday. I had fun with this lesson because when I was a kid I always wanted to make one of these figures when I started drawing Christmas stuff. Drawing a Nutcracker for kids will be a helpful tutorial especially for all you novice artists out there that really have the spirit when the jolly holiday rolls around. I will be back with more fun stuff to draw so come back around or stay put.
