Any suggestions on how to keep fondant figures from cracking? I was practicing making some fondant figures last week and they are now starting to crack.

I always add 1-2 teaspoons of shortening to my fondant (you can add more if you need to). This helps with many of the problems I have with fondant, including cracking.
