### Presents

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

### Face Painting

You want to make each of the 5 Platonic solids and colour the faces so that, in every case, no two faces which meet along an edge have the same colour.

### Let's Face It

In this problem you have to place four by four magic squares on the faces of a cube so that along each edge of the cube the numbers match.

Jason from Priory School, Dunstable says:

"If you cut 2 squares deep it will become a 6 x 6 base which I make as the biggest amount of space: 72 cubes. I worked this out using :

Length x Width x Height
6 x 6 x 2 = 72"

Christina (Marborough Primary, London) and Josh (Ampthill, Bedfordshire) agree with this answer.

Josh said, "At first I thought it would be best to cut out a 3x3 square at each corner, but that box only held 48 cubes. If you cut out a 2x2 square though, the box will hold 2x6x6 cubes which is 72. That is the most."
