Kevin, the Scout Elf – Naughty or Nice?

Kevin, the Scout Elf has been with us now for just over two weeks, and watching over the boys to see whether they belong on Santa’s Naughty or Nice list.

I wasn’t sure at first whether Jack was too young to understand the Elf on the Shelf tradition, but each morning, without fail, he goes on the hunt for Kevin.

Finding him always brings a smile to Jack’s face, and in turn, mine too.

Here are some of the things our Scout Elf has been up to:


Kevin delivered a message to the boys along with a gift, a bracelet and charm to wear throughout the festive season.

Kevin decided that he wanted a movie day with the boys and surprised us with some Christmas movies.


On the first day of December, Kevin brought some advent calendars for the boys to enjoy.


He even located us in London, where we found him perched on Nanny’s Christmas tree.


Some fun arrived in the form of a Candy Cane Hunt.  Jack managed to find all of the 12 hidden candy canes and was rewarded suitably.

My favourite without a doubt was when Kevin hitched a ride with Mr Polar Bear and gave our living room a festive makeover.  Jack was super excited to find a fully decorated Christmas tree in the morning.

So, Kevin has been kind to us so far by bringing plenty of nice surprises.  Although, something tells me that he is ready to up the ante.  Perhaps a little mischief may just be on its way to our home, watch this space.

What has your Scout Elf been up to?

    Ooh he definitely needs to be naughty before Christmas! I’m not keen on him to be honest, I find him a bit creepy! We don’t have an actual elf but the girls have a handmade advent calendar and the elves leave them a chocolate coin in there each day if they have been good.
