Question egg drop

I need help with my son's 5th grade science project. He has to build a container no bigger than 12X12X12 inches (it cannot have bubble wrap, styrofoam, comercially packing products). My son then needs to put an egg in the container and it will be dropped 90 feet. They will do this twice - once from the roof of the school and once from the top of a fire truck ladder. We need to try to build a container that will protect the egg from cracking. I am at a loss as to what to make the container out of. We need help fast!!! The container is due by November 6 but technically we are supposed to let them know now what we are making it out of. Please help. Thanks.
