Fifth and sixth birthday parties in NY, NJ and Conn.
By ages 5 and 6, drop-off birthday parties are recommended, although not necessary.
By these ages, your child knows … well … a lot. And five- and six-year-olds crave the independence, behave better in groups, and have a lot more fun without tons of parents
around them. So unless you are throwing a family party where the children truly span an array of mixed ages, if the majority of children are from your child’s class, save yourself the aggravation and do a drop-off party!
