how big is the motor? how big is the battery? I assume they're rather small, but if they aren't you're going to want to get a commercial switch from somewhere, such as RadioShack If you're talking A-D sized batteries and a small dc hobby motor, go ahead and punch a pair of tacks through a notecard. Then, bend up a paperclip into a hook shape. Then you can simply swing your primitive switch shut and complete the circuit.

One really crude switch involves two pieces of cardboard, tin foil, and scrap cloth or similar. Cover the two pieces of cardboard with the foil, tape the cloth around the edges between the two cardboard pieces, and then tape the cardboard together. Now you have a basic momentary switch.
