My 5 and 7 year olds play alone. I'll let my 3 year old play outside with just them, but not completely alone.

   We let our 3 yr old play in the backyard without us. We live on a pretty busy street though and she has NO concept of the danger of cars, it will prob be a while before we let her play out front by herself.

My kids are 2 and 4. They don't play outside alone at our house because we live in a second floor apartment right in town. My 4 year old is allowed to play outside alone at my moms house. She lives in the middle of nowhere with a big yard. We just check on him from the window often.

My ds will be 5 in march and dd 7 in June and they have been playing out back in the yard since last spring. Its right off the kitchen so I poked NY head out or look out my bedroom window while I clean. Most of the time I sit out with them. But in this snow. I an out shoveling so they aren't alone. And when they are out in the snow its 5 minutes and they are fffrrrreeeZzzing .lol

Around 4 if the yard wasn't fenced. But I can see all the yard and would check frequently.

My boys are 4,6 and 8, they play outside in the back yard alone. Usually by 3-4 they can go out in the back alone with me checking on them every few minutes. Now that my oldest is 8 I don't check as frequently and they do fine, usually pop in a at least once every half hour to ask me something. Gives me a little peace and a chance to clean up the mess that 3 boys and a 17 month old DD leave behind lol. We live in a wonderful town, our biggest crime is an occasional drunk person walking down the street being loud so I feel comfortable. If we lived in our former residence they'd never be out without me because it was not a safe city.
