Christmas Presents

We need to wrap up this cube-shaped present, remembering that we can have no overlaps. What shapes can you find to use?

The Third Dimension

Stage: 1 and 2 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3

Use multilink cubes to make the arrangements. Keep each one so you can make sure they're all different.

When you have drawn your arrangements on dotty paper, try giving them to a friend. He or she can make the shapes as a check to see whether you've drawn them correctly.
