  • 6 or 7 depends on the kid and how far away the friends house is and who they are

  • My oldest has been playing at her best friend's house since she was 3. They now spend half the summer together and my daughter goes on family vacations with them (she'll be 9 this summer).
    My son plays with his friend all the time in the summer. He was 6 last summer. My middle daughter just made her first real good friend and they had a playdate over the summer. She was 5.
