Re: How long for a 5 year old play date?
Depends on the time of day too - after school, 2 hours max, non-school day, maybe 3 hours if a meal is involved too. We started drop-off playdates around age 3. Mostly trading off - you take my kid for a couple hours, next week, I'll take yours! It's always easier to get stuff done around the house if DD has a friend over.
