Meet the SLPeeps – Guess and win! EDITED WITH ANSWERS

Thank you to everyone that submitted their picture and facts for the game. I have had an awesome time looking at everyone’s pictures and learning a little more about all of you. Now for the explanation. The childhood pic will be posted with the five facts; the object of the game is to match the childhood pic with the corresponding SLPeep.

THE PRIZES – Yes, I said prizes, as in plural. I am happy to say that I have had 2 fabulous prizes donated for the winner of the game. The first is an app from @VerballyApp and the second is a gift certificate to @LessonPix !! I’d like to thank them for their generous donations and I encourage everyone to explore their products. Personally I can’t wait to get an iPad so I can try all the iPad only apps. In addition there is also a prize of a pair of beaded earrings.

The Winner will be the person who identifies the most correct SLPeeps by Friday evening (winner announced Saturday Feb 11.) Good luck everyone!

Please match the following SLPeeps (and honorary SLPeeps) with the childhood photos below. I have provided a link to each twitter page so you can get hints from their avatar (if you need help) and also so you can follow any that you are not currently following. I am hoping that this game will be fun…it will definitely be challenging since we have 26 participants!! Let’s MEET THE SLPEEPS!!!! (I totally did a ring announcer voice when I typed that.)
