http://www.5min.com/Video/How-to-Make-a-Moving-Marble-Maze-from-PVC-110674822 There is one idea.

PVC pipes are cheap and are probably the best way to go. Plastic funnels, LEGOS, and you can make the maze a cool pattern for bonus, maybe it's in the shape of letters like for your name and such. Google search marble mazes since they have toys like that and see what they use.

Good luck!

If you go to Home Depot, they sell moving boxes and it would be thick enough and if you want a plain colored sheet try looking at home depot. If you don't find one you can maybe use a very thin cork sheet. Good luck! I know it was killer doing science projects when you didn't know what to use!



PS. You can probably find something like this at Home Depot. (The cardboard sheet)
