    Default 5th birthday party and invites - what's the protocol for twins?

    So DD is finally (her words!) turning 5 (youngest in class) and is having a party at a venue. I've told her max 15 including her (its expensive enough). So she needs to invite the friends she plays with. Now there are twins in her pre primary class, a girl and boy. She told me she wants to invite the little girl but doesn't play with the little boy. There are 3 boys coming from the class, the rest are girls. I think she needs to invite the twin boy too, as his sister will be going - but wanted to see what the general opinion was on this one. Also going to check it out with some of the mums at school who have boys who've had parties and see if they've invited both.

    I would invite both, can you imagine being the mum of the twins and having to explain to the boy he wasn't invited

    If there were no other boys going and it was going to be very much a "girly" party then i would only invite the one, however as you have 3 other boys going I think it would be much nicer for the twins and their mother if both were invited.

    I would invite both - I remember when my nieces were in kindy ( twin girls) and 1 wasn't invited to a party and it broke the other ones heart as she really was too young to understand or maybe talk to the mum and see if she thinks he would care?

    I would invite both.. The girl would come home full of beans and possibly with her party bag if your having them and the boy would probably be upset.. I think that young they come as a set unless it was a girls only party.

    I agree if it was only girls invited then I wouldn't invite the boy. But seeing as there is... it makes it hard... I would probably invite him. 15 is a lot of kids, I'm sure she could squeeze him on to her list somewhere.

    My sister is mum to 2 sets of twins and loves it when just one is invited to a party. It gives her the chance to spend 1:1 time with the invited child and reinforces to them that they are an individual and independent to their twin sibling.
