Deciding how many guests to invite is a classic challenge for a kid birthday party. The traditional rule of one guest per age works well for many folks, so if your child is turning 5 they can invite 5 guests. Some people alternate having one large party one year with no party the next or have a special outing with one special friend rather than a large party. If your child has a friend whose birthday is close to their party and they wouldn't mind sharing, have a joint birthday party and split the work load with the other parents.
