Share this fun Family Census Activity Printable with the families in your ministry to complete at home, or use it as part of your Sunday morning activities during the month of December!
Mary and Joseph traveled to the town of Bethlehem to be counted in the census. A census is a count of all the people in the land. Back in Bible times, people had to return to their hometown to be counted. So Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to be counted in the census (because that was Joseph’s hometown).
Fill out your own family census, but with an added twist. There are statements and then a blank next to it. You are to fill in the blank with the name of a person in your immediate family who fits that description.
For example, for “Laughs the Loudest”, you will fill in the blank with the name of a person in your family that has the loudest laugh.
Make enough copies of the census activity page for each person in your family to fill out one. Have each person fill it out on their own. Then come back and compare your answers with the rest of your family members.
