Hi dear Neha! I can understand u want to do ur best for ur kid. As far as menu is concerned u need to plan ur budget. If u can put Rs. 70 to 90 per person, u cud try ordering Mc. Donald's burger, frenchfries, chips ,cake plus chowmein. Or another idea is to put cholas kulcha, cake, chips, chowmein , biryani. These two plates are a hit amongst older people as well as kids. Making food at home would hardly leave with u energies to be able to enjoy birthday party. As far as return gifts are concerned u cud give inflated cartoon characters balls, crayons, pencil colours, cartoon character books, picture books, attractive piggy banks, clay set, gardening set, masks, etc. Coming on to games Rosh, has already given wonderful exciting areas. To add to those u cud play music on which children could dance and their parents can shake their legs too. U cud take a bucket filled with water. Put a ring inside touching the bottom. Each child has to throw a coin n whosoever is able to put the coin in the ring wins. Or u cud play musical chair with parents n kids too separately. Or u cud draw a lady on a chart paper n blindfold each child and ask them to put bindi on her forehead. The one closer to forehead wins. There are n no. Of exciting ideas. Hope u like these!

Hey neha, since children between 1-3 are fussy and choosy on what they eat , keeping the menu for kids simple is very ok. My daughter's birthday second birthday had simple things that were made at home and i had asked a couple of friends to help out in the kitchen before and even during the party. so simple things like cheese and ketchup sandwiches cut into mini triangles, vegetable cutlets that can be fried and warmed when serving ( you can keep the flavors simple and non spicy) , i even got baby muffins and made and icing at home then stuck some gems on to make them look fun. Fried chicken nuggets also are a great hit with children, you could also do penne pasta in white sauce , the cheesy and creamy pasta always is a sure bet with children.
