DIY: Matching Game

I've been trying to incorporate some fun, educational games into Eliza and I's day! So I made this quick little game and she just LOVED it. 
What You Need: 
Egg Carton 
Beans (I chose Lima because they are big) 
Permanent Markers (or paint) 

All you do is remove the extra flaps on the egg carton....

Color the bottoms of where the eggs are supposed to go

And then color the beans the same color as the bottom! I made different amounts for each color but in hindsight I wish I would have made them all the same number to keep track of them better. It's really easy to misplace these little beans. 
Sorry this picture is weirdly focused... but you get it, right?!
She really, really loved this game and it cost almost nothing to make! Woop woop!
