Where is Jesus? Magic Watercolor Art

Where is Jesus Magic Watercolor Art



We have been learning all about the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection this week (thanks to our felt banner from heartFELT Truths). As I was thinking of ways to incorporate more Resurrection activities into our week this morning at Community Bible Study, I remembered the “magic” watercolor technique and how simple and easy it is to use!

I first made it as a craft…but then quickly realized it would be nice to have a printable for busy families or Bible classes. Feel free to use and share the printable!


Here’s what you’ll need:  The “Where is Jesus?” Printable on Cardstock, Watercolors, and Oil Pastels. If you don’t have oil pastels, you can use regular crayons, just be sure to press hard and trace over your writing a few times.


We received the Oil Pastels compliments of CraftProjectIdeas.com.





1. Print out the “Where is Jesus?” Printable on Cardstock. Use a white oil pastel or crayon to write “He has Risen” on the inside of the tomb.








2. Let your child begin painting the paper with watercolors.








 Watch his/her surprise as the watercolor resists the crayon! If your child can read (or is learning), have him/her read the message aloud.






 This is our “homemade” version:  












The angel said, “He is not here! He has risen!” 



What is your favorite Resurrection Day activity?



  1. What a fabulous idea! Thanks so much for the printable!! We’ll be doing it this afternoon after we pick my oldest up from school! My favorite Resurrection activity is reading Benjamin’s Box and having the kids find the Resurrection eggs that go along with it. I picked up simple little boxes at the dollar tree for them to put their treasures in as they find them. It’s so sweet to see them carry their boxes around all week and look through their treasures.

  2. Anoche estaba pensando como enseñarles a mis hijos la verdadera pascua. Le doy gracias a Dios por darte tanta sabiduria para enseñar a nuestros hijos :) God bless you

  3. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing it with us. I go to CBS also and love it! It has been such a blessing to our family the past 3 years. I’m sad that this will be our last year since my program doesn’t have a homeschool class.

  4. We make ressurrection cookies. I will have to google the recipe again. You heat up the oven (the tomb), mix up the cookies, put them on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven. Turn the oven off and the next morning, the cookies are done. Break them open and look what is inside. (Nothing).

  5. Congratulation on all the kids activieties concerning the real meaning of Easter!
    I’m enjoying each and every one!
    May God keep on blessing you so that you may bless many others!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this craft. I teach the Kindergarten class at our Church and this will be a perfect activity for my little friends to do on Easter Sunday.
