  1. Start with the face

    Draw a circle for Santa's face, leaving enough room above the circle for his hat and a lot more room below for his body. Draw an oval or part of an oval for his nose just below the center of the circle. Add Santa's eyes a bit above and on either side of the nose. Draw a curve that looks like a shallow hill or upside down "u" for each eye. You can make the eyes look closed, or draw small open eyes on the undersides of those curves.

  2. Add the facial hair

    Draw eyebrows not far above the eyes. They can look like long rectangles with rounded edges or be drawn bushy. Draw his mustache. Starting from the sides of the nose, draw lines that slant down and out, end at a point, and then are reconnected just below the nose. Erase the bottom third of your circle, and draw a beard in its place that is often as long as the head.

  3. Draw his clothes

    Start with Santa's hat, which has a fuzzy part that should sit right on the eyebrows and tapers toward the end with a fuzzy ball. Usually Santa is also drawn with a big red coat, red pants, black boots and green gloves.

    What do kids want for Christmas?

    A:

    The specific things a child wants for Christmas will depend on his or her individual and unique tastes, but toys, games and other accessories related to popular children's movies and television shows are widely desired holiday gifts for kids. Other than outright asking a child for a list of gifts he or she might want, those people who want to know what to buy a child for Christmas should pay attention to the things that individual child gravitates toward. For example, buying an art set for an athletic child who prefers to play outdoors is probably not the best move.
